Bayer/Greenlight manufacturing technology deal

Bayer CropScience has entered into a manufacturing technology partnership with the US biotechnology company, GreenLight Biosciences (Medford, Massachusetts). Bayer will explore applications of GreenLight's proprietary cell-free technologies to increase the productivity of potential agrochemical manufacturing processes. The technology is a "safe, fast energy efficient and economical" way of manufacturing through the use of bacteria that have been engineered to produce enzymes for cell-free synthesis processes, the companies point out. "We aim to replace the use of fossil hydrocarbons and expensive natural precursors in the production of chemicals with sustainable feedstocks," says GreenLight chairman and CEO Dr Andrey Zarur.
