Transcript

  • 1. Commercializing Macroalgae: The Future of Feedstocks for Industrial Biotechnology
  • 2. About Bio Architecture Lab
    HISTORY
    Founded in 2008 by Dr. Yasuo Yoshikuni and Yuki Kashiyama
    VALUE PROPOSITION
    Producing a sustainable and scalable low cost sugar alternative from macroalgae
    Coupling our proprietary microbial technology and macroalgae aquafarming to enable partners to produce renewable fuels and chemicals
    STRATEGY
    FUNDING
    Predominately non-dilutive funding (75%) from marquee partnerships
    • Chilean Government
    • 3. Statoil (Norway)
    • 4. DuPont (US)
    • 5. United States Department of Energy
    STRATEGIC CONTROL POINT
    Blocking IP that uniquely enables the production of low cost bio-based chemicals and fuels from macroalgae
  • 6. The Global Feedstock
  • 7. Sugar is the “New Crude Oil”
    Fermentable Sugar REQUIRED to Support GLOBAL Biofuel Growth

    Million Metric Tons of Sugar
    • Conventional sugar producers may not be able to support this global demand
    • 8. Significant upward pressure on conventional corn and sugar prices
    • 9. Both corn and sugar cane compete for arable land and freshwater
    • 10. BAL value proposition is to deliver fermentable sugars at 6-12 cents per pound
  • Macroalgae is the Ideal Biomass for Sugar Production
    ABUNDANT
    SCALABLE
    • Fastest Growing Plants on Earth
    • 11. Well Studied Aquafarming
    • 12. Perennial Biomass
    • 13. Local Species Available
    • 14. Significant Coastline Farming Potential
    • 15. Demonstrated Commercial Scale Farms
    ENVIRONMENTAL
    LOW COST
    • No Competition for Land
    • 16. No Fresh Water
    • 17. Beneficial to the Oceans
    • 18. Low Carbon Footprint
    • 19. High Sugar Content
    • 20. No LIGNIN to degrade
    • 21. Competitive with Brazilian Sugar Cane
    • 22. Co-product Opportunities
  • Macroalgae is a Global Feedstock That Can Scale to Meet World Sugar Demand
    Optimal Macroalgae Areas
  • 23. The BAL Solution
  • 24. Synthetic Biology is BAL’s Strategic Control Point
    • Only BAL technology can metabolize the sugars in seaweed to make it an economically viable biomass.
    • 25. BAL has a multi-platform technology that can convert macroalgae into both renewable fuels and chemicals
    • 26. Blocking IP internationally
    • 27. BAL technology is applicable to any microbial product
    • 28. BAL technology can metabolize the sugars in most species of seaweed
    • 29. Pilot Plant June 2012
