Genomatica achieves BDO demo scale

Genomatica said it has successfully produced bio-1,4 butanediol (BDO) from its first demonstration-scale 13,000 liter fermentation tank located at Tate & Lyle's facility in Decatur, Illinois, 3 months after the companies announced their partnership.

The company did not disclose how much BDO was produced at the facility. The blog also asked Genomatica's target commercial production capacity planned in late 2012 as well as where the location of this plant will be. No answer for these questions either.
