Company Summary

ISTHMUS develops un-used or under-used grazing lands in Mexico that have the potential to sustain large-scale renewable energy projects from non-food crops. These projects will supply low-carbon fuel into the U.S. markets through a 100% off-take agreement fully signed with a major oil co and the use of fully proven technology.
