h and development program. The macroalgae aquafarming project will be conducted in Southern California.

“Our capabilities in the field of metabolic engineering and advanced industrial biotechnology techniques make this a natural addition to our existing R&D pipeline,” said John Pierce, vice president – DuPont Applied BioSciences - Technology.

“Bio Architecture Lab is the leader in the development of technology to utilize macroalgae as low cost, scalable and sustainable biomass for the production of biofuels,” said Nikesh Parekh, CEO of Bio Architecture Lab. “Our partnership with DuPont and Butamax™ validates our core technology and will help us extend it into the production of isobutanol.”

Butamax™ has a multi-generational program to introduce isobutanol from different feedstocks to the market. Initially, isobutanol will be produced from feedstocks such as corn, wheat, and sugarcane. Subsequently, isobutanol production can be based on cellulosic feedstocks and, eventually, advanced feedstocks such as macroalgae.

“We project macroalgae to biobutanol technology will reduce greenhouse gas emissions significantly compared to petroleum,” said Butamax™ CEO Tim Potter. “Butamax™ is expanding its feedstock flexibility to deliver isobutanol sustainably to achieve ever-cleaner transportation fuels. This evolutionary feedstock approach will enable greater reductions in carbon intensity as sustainable lower carbon feedstocks emerge.”

DuPont and BP were the first to identify the potential of isobutanol as an advanced biofuel. Their partnership was formalized in July 2009 with the creation of the Butamax™ Advanced Biofuels LLC joint venture. ButamaxTM and its parent companies have
