REG Life SciencesTM Services

REG is commercializing industrial biotechnology processes that provide cost-competitive, renewable alternatives to petroleum-based chemicals, fuels and other products to our customers. At the core of our technology are biological catalysts engineered to selectively convert abundant, renewable feedstocks directly to drop-in, advantaged and innovative products. Learn more about our products.

Industry-leading research

  • REG Life Sciences™ services include a proprietary method for the synthesis of mid-to-long chain (8 to 18 carbon) chemicals developed in our R&D laboratories in South San Francisco, California
  • Demonstrated expertise with biotechnology tools to optimize molecular composition to customer needs - for instance, multifunctional chemicals with tailored positioned hydroxyl groups
  • Patented process covers the catalytic capabilities of microbial metabolism to produce targeted final products in an environmentally friendly fermentation process

Production capacity

  • REG Life Sciences™ services include a demonstration-scale fermentation facility located in Florida with capacity for ​producing more than 200 tons/year
  • Proprietary flexible technology enables the production of multiple products in our fermentation facility

Diverse feedstock, low-GHG impact

  • The REG platform technology can use a variety of low cost feedstocks to produce performance molecules and replacements for palm-sourced oleochemicals
  • Our low-GHG process allows us to use sustainable feedstocks to produce competitively-priced REG chemicals. Calculated low-carbon impact of glycerol feedstock for detergent alcohols is 85 percent lower than incumbent products
