Extremophilic Fungi for Applications in Industry and Medicine

Technology and Product Development by Sustainable Bioproducts, LLC in Conjunction with Montana State University

Sustainable Bioproducts LLC is a development stage company with a wide range of products and technologies for industrial and medical applications. Our mission is to bring sustainable products to market for a cleaner healthier planet.

Technology and Product Development

Sustainable Bioproducts has developed a process for easily converting waste feedstock to valuable commercial products. Our unique, highly efficient process is based on an extremophilic fungal strain (MK-7) isolated from fumaroles at Yellowstone National Park.

Products under development include:

Ethanol and Biofuels

The MK-7 process achieves very high conversion efficiency to biodiesel and ethanol from lignocellulosic materials.



Lipids: Oils, Waxes, and Neutraceuticals

The MK-7 process produces high yields of lipids, such as oils, waxes, and neutraceuticals, at rates that are commercially viable.




Unique and powerful enzymes for commercial uses, such as rapid breakdown of lignocellulosic materials for lipid production and for use in detergents and degreasers.


Drug Compounds

Produces Bikaverin, which is found to have anti-cancer, anti-malarial, antimicrobial, antioxidant and neuro-degeneration prevention properties.




Plant Hormones and Biofertilizer

Gibberellic acid (GA3), an important plant hormone that controls a plant's growth and development.


Strain MK7 produces a number of pleasant, sweet smelling ester compounds, which have high value for artificial flavorings and fragrances, and as additives to lubricants, cosmetics, plastics, resins, explosives, biofuels, and surfactants.
