Welcome to Sustainable Bioresources, LLC

We are a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) located in the Discovery Harbour area near the south tip of the Big Island of Hawaii.  Our primary activities are research and development of plant cultivars for applications in sustainable agriculture and new, science based applications for materials derived from these plants.  Our research greenhouse includes a Hawaii Department of Agriculture Certified Nursery and the nursery is also endorsed by the Plant Pono Program reflecting our commitments to not sell or introduce potentially invasive species.

Our expertise also includes general environmental health practice with specialization in hazardous materials management and development of innovative approaches for integrating sustainability, health and substance related risk reduction objectives in purchasing decisions and systems.  We may offer consulting services relating to these areas of expertise.

The primary intent of the website is to disseminate information from our business activities.  We also have an online storefront for sales of seeds and plants from our research activities.
