BIOFACTURING:PARTNERING WITH NATURE
Using the power of biology, we design, develop, and commercialize breakthrough products faster, cheaper, and greener than ever before.
Welcome to biofacturing.
What is biofacturing?
Building on advances in genomics, machine learning, and automation, Zymergen’s patented platform unlocks the greatest manufacturer of all: Nature. It enables us to pinpoint useful molecules in Nature’s vast catalog, produce them with biology, and scale them to market at the speed of the digital age.
The future of production
The result? Production in half the time and at a tenth of the cost of traditional methods—without energy-intensive processes, toxic chemicals, and massive infrastructure.
By partnering with Nature, we can not only make better products, but also make tomorrow a better world.
How we do it
Our Focus Areas
The opportunity is enormous, and our approach is strategic. We focus on industries where biology can make a better product, create enormous value, and leverage quick development cycles.
Making our ever-evolving devices more renewably
Meeting consumer needs with naturally derived products
Developing safer crop protection, farming, and pest control
Solving our planet’s biggest challenges, sustainably
Expanding design possibilities
Our Z-film franchise launched in 2020 with Hyaline, an electronic film with best-in-class properties in optical transparency and strength. Our portfolio of films will come together to produce displays with previously impossible performance.
Enhancing consumer care
Biofacturing is ideal for making naturally-derived, bioactive ingredients for sustainable consumer care products. What better way to fight off pesky bugs than Nature itself? See how our next-generation insect repellent unlocks biology to beat back bugs.
Defending the future 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
