About Us TEAM

The United States Department of Energy issued a report entitled “Top Value Added Chemicals from Biomass”. The report confirms the $10's of billions market opportunities that exist for innovators able to deliver these high value chemicals in a cost effective manner. The biological production of these chemicals changes the cost structure well beyond the single digit percentages typical of today's chemical industry, up to 50% or even an order of magnitude in cost reduction. As in the biotech industry, perfecting even one of these molecules forms the basis for a paradigm shifting industrial biotechnology corporation.

WHO WE ARE

Kalion is an early stage industrial biotech company that will transform the traditional chemical industry by providing low-cost access to glucaric acid and S-3-hydroxybutyrolactone (3-HBL) using traditional, green, fermentation technology. Glucaric acid and 3-HBL were identified as “Top Value Added Chemicals from Biomass” and multi-billion dollar markets for use of the two chemicals are limited by cost and availability (2004 DOE report).

Our team is composed of a diverse set of individuals with broad and relevant experience.

Great Team
