GlobalYeast welcomes the decision of CTNBio in accordance with the new Normative Resolution 16
GlobalYeast welcomes the decision of CTNBio (National Technical Committee of Biosafety) in accordance with the new Normative Resolution 16 introduced in Brazil in January, to consider a number of GlobalYeast organisms as safe that do not need further regulatory scrutiny. Thanks to this decision, GlobalYeast is able to contribute to a more efficient industrial bioethanol production process, and as a consequence, can be part of a more sustainable community. By developing more efficient yeast strains for industrial fermentation, more bioethanol can be generated with the same amount of inputs. In this way, GlobalYeast is contributing to the circular economy that is now key within the RenovaBio regulation, a direct reaction to the Climate Change Agreement established in 2015 in Paris. By making use of new precision breeding techniques, the GlobalYeast team was able to introduce alterations that also occur in nature, in a precise, fast and efficient manner into industrial production strains. These techniques were applied in the most responsible manner by the GlobalYeast team, as carefully verified by CTNBio.
