Tethys is seeking commercial partnerships or alliances that provide investment capital and technical assistance to support and expedite commercialization of its proprietary HLEs and associated process technology. Our business model is amenable to straightforward investment, joint project development, technical consultation, scale-up funding, or other creative partner relationships. In exchange, Tethys offers competitive advantages via exclusive licensing or sale of IP. Tethys plans to expand its core R&D functions over the next five years to become a significant force in enzyme discovery and commercialization for the pulp and paper, integrated forest biorefinery (IFBR), and biofuels industries.
