Microbial Feedstocks

Tech Futures can identify, cultivate, extract and refine plant- and microbe-sourced chemicals for the health and manufacturing industries to commercialize.

Let Tech Futures help you commercialize new products

Tech Futures employs experienced staff in commercialization of industrial bioproducts and has an understanding of how bio-based chemical production and extraction can compete with existing suppliers.

Tech Futures targets the best market opportunities by combining financial anlayses with staff's specialized knowledge of ecology, agronomy, microbiology and analytical chemistry. 

Capabilities

Tech Futures has experience in customizing agronomic production solutions for bioindustrial crops. Focus areas include:

Production of high value chemicals in crops

  • Capable of working with many plant species used by bioindustrial crop developers and are able to provide disease and pest control solutions to such operations.
  • Tech Futures' knowledge of crop and weed biology promotes development of optimal techniques for production of new bioindustrial crops. These techniques also can be applied in maximizing desired bioactive compound yield.

Microbials
  • Sphere of expertise includes chemical production from plants and microbes — organisms, which are capable of converting low-cost inputs (air, sunlight, nitrogen) into complex, high-value molecules that cannot be efficiently synthesized by thermochemical means.

Extraction and refinement
  • Tech Futures' capabilities in detection, quantification and molecular characterization allow for the development of extraction and refinement techniques that add value to plant and micro-based raw materials.
