Most importantly, we continue to create long-term stockholder value by executing on our commercialization plan and investing in our technology platform.”

“Our team remains focused on building out our renewable oil production capacity, working with industry leading partners to commercialize our tailored triglyceride oils, and continuing to demonstrate how our technology platform opens new market opportunities for our customers,” added Wolfson.
