Summary

Byogy invests in supply chain

Pursuing their effort to supply drop-in biofuels and chemicals, Byogy has invested in a strategic partnership with AusAgave Australia, as part of the upstream integration of multiple feedstocks to develop low cost sugars for the production of renewable fuels and chemicals. With feedstock cost representing over 65% of fuels final cost, Byogy has launched a dedicated agriculture division with the integration of the AusAgave team.

Agave has been commercially planted for centuries and has the ability to grow in dry climates and poor soil conditions, with very low water and fertilizer demands. AusAgave has spent the last ten years working and developing intellectual property on plant propagation, agronomy, cropping, and harvesting techniques and announces plantations affording at least a 50% yield per acre improvement over historic sugarcane productivity.

Byogy invests to vertically integrate technology platforms in an effort to develop complete supply chains with stable and competitive costs. Byogy will now expand its Brazil operations by introducing the AusAgave increased sugar yields of the agave crop, a crop already proven in Brazil for fiber production, to supplement the sugar cane industry to produce drop-in renewable fuels and chemicals from low cost sugars.
