Company Profile

Godavari Biorefineries Limited


About the Organization


We are a biorefining company producing sugar, other foods, biofuels, chemicals, power, compost, waxes, and related products, using sugarcane as the primary feedstock. Founded in 1939, we have been pioneers in the growing, processing, and utilization of biomass to make a wide variety of products. Our aim is to engage in research and innovate by continuously making new products and entering new markets in order to derive the maximum value from our feedstock. Our research areas include sustainable farming, transformation of biomass chemical, mechanical and biological , product development, and process optimization. Our cancer group, informally known as Sathgen, is working on the discovery of molecules for the treatment of breast and prostate cancer cells. Our focus is different, since we seek to eliminate cancer stem cells. Our drugs can work independently and in combination with other therapies for cancer treatment.
