We are rapidly transforming into the biorefinery platform of the future, harnessing the potential of our resources, technology and people.
Transformation. It’s what we do every day when we convert a kernel of corn into sustainable products to help meet the global demand for high-value feed ingredients, specialty alcohols and low-carbon fuel. We are in the midst of a broader transformation extracting even more low-carbon ingredients from the same annually renewable crops. Our suite of proprietary technologies and industry partnerships makes our broad transformation possible. We are leading the way in producing sustainable ingredients to meet the demands of a growing world.
Our transformation includes deploying our patented, world-class mechanical and process technology at each of our locations, while combining the knowledge and resources of exclusive strategic partnerships with our expertise in fermentation to develop nutritious, valuable ingredients that make a positive global impact.
We are reducing our operating expenses, expanding our ability to isolate the highest-value proteins for use in feed ingredients in pet, aquaculture and other high-value markets and producing higher-value alcohols to meet global demand—all while capturing more low-carbon corn oil from each kernel to serve the rapidly expanding renewable diesel market.
Our goal is to transform our entire platform by 2024-25, and we believe each fully executed initiative will result in a growing financial contribution.
