At MBI, we strive to create meaningful societal benefits by collaborating with universities, governments, financial supporters, and companies to accelerate the commercialization of biobased technologies. Consistent with our not-for-profit mission, we share select technologies—those that show the promise of game-changing sustainability—with the global community.
