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 on site activities are research and development of plant cultivars for use in sustainable agriculture and new, science based applications for materials derived from these plants.  These applications include neutraceuticals and biopesticides for control of vectors and disease agents of great contemporary importance – rat lungworm angiostrongyliasis and mosquito transmitted arboviruses such as dengue, zika and chikungunya. 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 plant species.

Our expertise also includes general environmental health practice with specialization in hazardous materials management. This includes development of innovative approaches for integrating sustainability, health and substance related risk reduction objectives in purchasing decisions and systems.  We may offer research and 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 a seasonally operated storefront for online sales of seeds and plants from our research activities.
