Agrivida Announces Collaboration With Syngenta Ventures to Deliver Low-Cost Sugars for Cellulosic Biofuels and Biochemicals
Date:12/10/2010

MEDFORD, Mass., Dec. 10, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Agrivida, Inc. today announced a collaboration with Syngenta Ventures to develop advanced crop technology that will provide low-cost sugars for a variety of industrial applications.  Under the terms of the agreement, Syngenta licenses to Agrivida access to crop technology and intellectual property in return for Agrivida equity.  

Agrivida will bolster its existing technology portfolio, including its proprietary intein trait platform, with technology licensed from Syngenta that will be used to develop new traits for multiple crops, including corn, sorghum, switchgrass and miscanthus.  Agrivida's traits will make next-generation bioproducts more affordable by significantly decreasing biomass processing costs associated with non-food agricultural residues and dedicated biomass crops.

Announcing the collaboration, Mr. Mark Wong, Agrivida's Chief Executive Officer, said "Agrivida is excited to be able to accelerate our product development through our relationship with Syngenta Ventures, the venture capital arm of Syngenta, one of the world's leading agribusiness companies.  The combination of Agrivida's proprietary intein platform with Syngenta's technology will allow us to provide an integrated solution for feedstock and enzyme delivery to a wide range of industrial customers.  Technologies developed through our collaboration will provide growers, processors, seed partners, and all members of the value chain with crops that enable cost-effective products from cellulosic biomass, and in turn helps to transform this emerging industry."

Agrivida's deal with Syngenta is the latest in a number of recent successes for the company.  In July, Agrivida announced breakthroughs in its development of sugar production from enzyme expressing crops at the annual BIO industry conference, which followed recent awards from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Advanced Research Pro
