With the agreement, Raízen will supply sugar, energy, and other utilities to Amyris at the latter's new production facility to be co-located with Raízen's Barra Mill in Barra Bonita, Brazil. The supply agreement and co-location will help Amyris re-establish itself in the specialty chemicals and ingredients markets after selling its high-volume farnesene assets to DSM in 2017. Looking forward, if the joint venture (JV) comes to fruition, it will provide Amyris a capable partner to scale its Reb M fermentation platform in order to fulfill its various Reb M supply and distribution agreements made in 2018.
