About Industrial Biotechnology Corporation

Industrial Biotechnology Corporation (IBC) commercializes proprietary technologies and intellectual property in the emerging field of biologically produced chemicals. We believe these technologies enable IBC to more efficiently manufacture high value chemicals at significantly lower costs, with a substantially lower environmental impact than traditional methods, and with a higher purity. Through licensing, partnerships, and direct sales via multiple distribution channels to several industries, IBC will bring to market new and established chemicals that are in high demand for use in Flavors and Fragrances, Fine chemicals, Pharmaceutical, Agricultural, Environmental and Bio-Energy applications. IBC's pioneering and state-of-the-art biological production methods can replace large manufacturing facilities, many of which employ hazardous processes, and toxic materials in their chemical production. These innovative methods involve fewer production steps, and through the use of "designer" enzymes and proprietary production systems, may enable IBC to produce greater yields of high-purity, natural compounds at significantly lower costs. We believe these processes can be readily scaled-up to large, commercial production levels. IBC's core intellectual property utilizes patented technologies exclusively licensed from Oxford University and Rice University. The company has assembled a team of leading scientists, management and industry leaders to implement these new technologies. IBC has a comprehensive technology and licensing acquisition strategy, and will seek to establish research and development partnerships with leading universities and corporations in the industrial biotechnology field to develop commercially viable biological-based solutions and related intellectual property patents.
