Amyris ends Tate & Lyle toll deal

It's payback time for taking a couple of days off from blogging and now I have to do some catching up with news. The blog has also lost its most useful web tool -- the Google Reader, and I had to put something a little less reliable in its place in order to get updated press releases.

In the meantime, I came across this news from Amyris stating that the company has terminated its toll manufacturing deal with Tate & Lyle Ingredients Americas, which started in 2010. The toll manufacturing agreement entails secured manufacturing capacity for farnesene through 2016 at Tate & Lyle's Decatur, Illinois, facility. The deal included a base monthly payment regardless of level production of Tate & Lyle's facility in addition to a variable amount based on volume.
