    DMC Bio produces bio-based chemicals using fermentation. Many chemicals are too expensive today for broad market adoption, such as certain amino acids for animal feed or natural cleaning agents for personal care. These products can be made more affordably and reliably using DMC’s technology. According to Matthew, in order to make supply chains more robust and local we can accelerate the transition to a bio-sourced economy by providing a level-playing field for bio-sourced technologies vs crude oil-based economy. We also need a long-term vision as those clean technologies take time to develop.

To that effect, he proposes the government gives a tax credit on profits when an investor holds on to an investment over a period of five years, as an example.
