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.
