We are also working closely with our sister division, Cibus US, to explore a significant opportunity to develop new versions of canola that generate unique oils. The oils will be tailor made to be convertible to key monomers that can be used to make sustainable bio-polymers.

We need a chemistry competent, energetic person who can do the necessary market research work on the bio-polymers of interest to the industry and to the brands, the required target monomers ( volumes and value) and then work back to establish which canola oils are required.
