Amyris updates partnership deals

I've been reading Amyris' recently filed annual report (10-K) with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which gives a comprehensive summary of the company's performance last year, and it reminds the blog how difficult and risky it is for a company to establish and commercialize new technologies especially within traditional, matured markets such as the fuel and chemical industries.

Anyway, Amyris has some good news to announce such as a possible $30m funding coming in by July this year from Total as part of a revised collaboration agreement announced last year. Amyris and Total could also form a joint venture company by mid-2013 to market renewable diesel, jet fuel and other specialty products that will use Amyris' farnesene molecule marketed under the brand Biofene.

Amyris roll out its first truckload shipment of Biofene in January
