COMPANY PROFILE

Using Corynebacterium to solve the pressing issues of the world such as energy crisis, food crisis, and climate change.

COMPANY STORY

Origin

GEI was established as Japan's first public foundation spin-off, in order to make practical use of innovative biorefinery technology using bacterias called Corynebacterium which was developed by Research Institute of Innovative Technology for the Earth(RITE).

Strength

Traditional fermentation process requires biomass, but GEI can produce bio-fuels and green chemicals at low cost from non-edible biomass such as stems, leaves, and debris. Furthermore, by leveraging a wide range of domestic and overseas networks that have created through our business activities so far, have established a brand new platform for the bio-refinery industry.
