Verenium Corporation (Nasdaq: VRNM) was formed in June of 2007 through the merger of Diversa Corporation, a global leader in industrial enzyme discovery and development, and Celunol Corporation, a company on the forefront of developing cellulosic ethanol.
Verenium is using its proprietary technologies and world-class expertise in pre-treatment, novel enzyme development, fermentation, engineering and project development to accelerate the development and commercialization of cellulosic ethanol from a wide array of feedstocks, including sugarcane bagasse, dedicated energy crops, agricultural waste and wood products.
By using theses integrated end-to-end capabilities, Verenium is positioned to be the first to produce cellulosic ethanol on a commercial-scale.
In addition, the Company discovers and optimizes enzymes, proteins that act as the catalysts of biochemical reactions, for the biofuels, specialty industrial processes and health & nutrition markets. Verenium currently has a portfolio of commercialized enzyme products as well as several late-stage product candidates.
