Promotion of industry cooperation

RITE molecular microbiology and biotechnology group has fostered seeds of biorefinery technology related to an efficient biomass utilization. We actively promote, develop, and commercialize our research through working with a wide range of businesses and industries.
Please feel free to contact us if you would like to learn more regarding our efforts to develop our seed technologies for practical uses, and their use in novel applications.

Contribution to environment by Industrializing biorefinery

The biomass is plant origin, enabling a virtuous carbon-neutral cycle of plant growing, processing, harvesting, and burning, meaning that its use does not contribute to net changes in the level of atmospheric CO2. Therefore the biorefinery using biomass can contribute to reducing pressure on global environment by suppressing CO2 emission derived from consumption of fossil resources. Thus, foundation for industrialization of biorefinery technology makes our contribution possible to preserve global environment and promote a recycling-oriented society.
