Our Competitive Advantage

Phytonix’s technology has many advantages over other chemical and  fuel production technologies. It utilizes carbon dioxide as the sole feedstock, avoiding food vs. fuel issues and the high costs associated with biomass sourcing and logistics. Phytonix’s production process is significantly carbon-negative and its fuel life cycle is carbon-neutral through combustion. Fermentation-based technologies produce large amounts of carbon dioxide as a waste product. Our n-butanol production process replaces a fossil-based, carbon-intensive production process used by the worlds largest chemical companies. We employ a collaborative business model and work with world class scientific and engineering teams for development and commercialization.

Event: 8th Carbon Dioxide Utilization Summit (February 22 – 23, 2017 in San Antonio, Texas, USA)

ACI’s 8th Carbon Dioxide Utilization Summit follows on from a successful series of conferences focusing on the re-use of greenhouse gas CO2 and converting this into profitable sustainable materials. The two day conference brings together senior experts from various CO2 emitting industries discussing the sustainable, technological and commercial aspects of CO2 Utilization in North America and across the globe.

Mr. Bruce Dannenberg, Founder and CEO of Phytonix Corporation, has accepted the invitation to Chair the “8th Carbon Dioxide Utilization Summit” for the second year in a row.

As Summit Chairman, Mr. Dannenberg will provide opening and closing remarks each day, and he will also be presenting on February 23rd at 9:05am as part of the “CO2 for Chemicals, Materials & Plastics” Session.

Phytonix’s CEO presented and participated in a panel discussion at a high-profile study on “Future Biotechnology Products and Opportunities to Enhance Capabilities of the Biotechnology Regulatory System” at the request of the U.S. EPA, USDA, FDA and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy on June 27th, 2016 in San Francisco USA

Mr. Bruce Dannenberg, CEO of Phytonix Corporation, accepted an invitation to participate in and present at the one-day information-gathering meeting organized by The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to answer the questions “What will the likely future products of biotechnology be over the next 5-10 years? What scientific capabilities, tools, and/or expertise may be needed by the regulatory agencies to ensure they make efficient and sound evaluations of the likely future products of biotechnology?”

Mr. Dannenberg provided the committee with important and valuable insights in regards to Phytonix’s breakthrough technology and it’s leadership approach for the utilization of both passive and active (proprietary) strategies and technology for the bio-safety guarded photobiological production of sustainable fuels and chemicals. This could provide a framework for future self-regulatory approaches and how these types of approaches might relate to appropriate future levels of mandated.

Phytonix’s CEO to present at the 2016 German Conference on “Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Fuels, Chemistry and Polymers”, December 6-7, 2016 in Maternushaus, Cologne, Germany

The conference is one of the world leading events on Carbon Capture and Utilization for 2016 (including: Sustainable Fuels, Chemicals and Polymers from Renewables and CO2).

Mr. Dannenberg’s presentation will be part of the Chemical and Polymers Track on Day 2 (Dec. 7, 2016) and is titled “Utilizing Synthetic Biology to Address Global Challenges: Climate Change and Sustainable Chemistry”.

This presentation will provide an overview of how Phytonix is employing synthetic biology to address the global challenges of climate change and the production of cost competitive, sustainable bio-chemicals and biofuels. The economic and environmental opportunities made possible by advances in industrial biotechnology and synthetic biology will be addressed, including the transition to bio-based and CO2-based production of consumer products, chemicals and fuels.
