We are biofacturers.

We partner with Nature to create the building blocks of tomorrow.

We are fundamentally changing how things are made and what they are made of.

Our Mission (1:51)

Biofacturing: partnering with nature

Our material world is built on a half-dozen petroleum building blocks. But Nature provides a richer, more sustainable palette.

Biofacturing is how we partner with Nature to design, create, and scale breakthrough products faster, cheaper, and greener than ever before.

From better electronics to safer herbicides, to naturally-derived insect repellents that work, it’s all possible with biofacturing. And it’s how we make the products of tomorrow.

Tomorrow’s Products Today

Biofacturing offers solutions across a broad range of industries today. And we believe it will enable breakthrough materials in medicine, transportation, construction, and more tomorrow.


Better technology begins with better biology

Electronics evolve rapidly, demanding materials with higher performance at competitive costs. Welcome a family of polymers that produces revolutionary bio-based polyimide films, unlocking innovations for manufacturers of electronic devices and more.

The future – and footprint – of food

Crop production needs to double by 2050 to feed the growing global population, and our farmers need effective and economical solutions to overcome challenges naturally and sustainably. We are developing naturally occurring products to both enhance nutrient use and protect crops from pests and ever-evolving challenges—in a way that’s better for growers and the environment.
