R & D Lab
Much of the innovation that distinguishes KiOR’s technology is born at KiOR’s Pasadena, Texas, headquarters which houses several small-scale laboratory reactors to test new ideas. KiOR's team of researchers includes over 30 PhD's. At this site, KiOR’s catalyst development team tests and characterizes novel catalyst system formulations. The R&D labs are also used for initial testing of alternative feedstocks, such as miscanthus and sugarcane bagasse.
