By | January 03, 2009
Renewable fuel company Amyris-Crystalsev Biofuels has welcomed Roberto Rodriques and Fernando Reinach to its staff. Rodrigues joins the company's new strategic advisory board, where he will advise on commercialization ventures of sugarcane-based diesel in Brazil. Reinach was appointed to the Amyris board of directors.
Also in October, Amyris announced a strategic equity investment made by Votorantim Novos Negcios, supporting Amyris' objective of commercializing diesel fuel made from sugarcane by 2010. It brought the total capital raised by Amyris in 2008 to $100 million.
