The collaboration between JBEI and Abengoa will most likely lead to new metabolically engineered microorganisms and perhaps even novel fuel molecules. If the features of these new molecules suggest potential improvements, the next step would be to scale-up the production in a pilot plant and later in a demonstration facility affiliated with Abengoa Bioenergy NT in different US locations to demonstrate the feasibility of the commercial process. It then intends to implement these solutions on a commercial scale where economically promising in the US. Both steps would lead to the creation of new farming, construction, supply chain, and plant operation jobs in the US.
