Established in the 1970s, Iogen Corporation has become one of Canada's leading biotechnology firms. Iogen is an industrial manufacturer of enzyme products with a focus on products for use by the pulp and paper, textile and animal feed industries. It also is the world leader in technology to produce cellulose ethanol, a fully renewable, advanced biofuel that can be used in today's cars.
Iogen is a privately held company, based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, with a rapidly growing work force. Public and private investment in Iogen has totaled approximately $130 million over the past 25 years. Major investors include the Royal Dutch/Shell Group, Petro-Canada and the Government of Canada. Iogen employs a staff of approximately 180 people, with over half involved in research and development, and engineering; one fifth in manufacturing; and the balance in sales, marketing, and administration.

Cellulose Ethanol is Ready to Go

Cellulose ethanol can significantly:

lower overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
reduce reliance on imported oil and increase energy security
help build rural economies and improve farm income
Cellulose ethanol is one of the most cost effective ways to reduce GHGs and gasoline consumption in road transport and can deliver benefits similar to improved vehicle efficiency.

Iogen built and operates the world's only demonstration scale facility to convert biomass to cellulose ethanol using enzyme technology. This facility is located in Ottawa. Iogen is currently assessing potential locations for the world's first commercial prototype cellulose ethanol plant.

In the long-term, Iogen intends to commercialize its cellulose ethanol process by licensing its technology broadly through turnkey plant construction partnerships. License fees and the supply of enzymes to the licensees' plants will generate income.
