Accelerating the Transition
to BioAlternatives

Manufacturing many of today’s everyday products is resource intensive and comes with a heavy environmental cost.

We enable companies across industries to replace existing ingredients, materials, and chemicals with bioalternatives, increasing supply security while reducing environmental impacts.

What are BioAlternatives?

Bioalternatives are more sustainable versions of molecules traditionally sourced through environmentally harmful means, such as petrochemical or agricultural extraction, and animal husbandry.

The microbe and the microbial cell factory are at the core of our work – providing the engine of efficiency

Using synthetic biology, we can harness the power of engineered cell factories to produce bioalternatives cost-effectively, reliably, and sustainably – for use in a wide range of everyday products.
