AusAgave is the global leader in the commercialisation of agave cultivars for sugars and fibres in the bio-mass markets. The species and cultivar selections focus on agaves that will yield the highest levels of sugars and fibres for many growing regions. For over 10 years, AusAgave has innovated, designed, and implemented various technologies and proprietary methods to create turn-key solutions for agave biomass production of plants and plantations from the ground up.
AusAgave has taken the use of selected agaves to a new level, well beyond the current spirit and fibre markets, by mechanizing the crop and demonstrating viable utilisation of the entire harvested agave plant for biofuels, animal feeds, bioenergy and biomaterials.
AusAgave is at the forefront of global biomass production in marginal dry-land areas. AusAgave uses agaves that are highly suitable to withstand and thrive under increased temperatures and lower rainfall resulting from climate change.
AusAgave also has selected species suitable for commercialisation within lower temperature environments, thus providing agave solutions for most situations.
Our mission is to maintain global leadership in supplying the Agave value chains through innovation, strategic partnerships and development of new plants, processes and technologies, with environmental stewardship and sustainability.
AusAgave’s small independent specialist team makes for an agile organisation comprising the very best people available globally to grow your business.
