PARTNERING WITH NATURE
Using the power of biology, we have the potential to design, develop, and commercialize breakthrough products faster, cheaper, and greener than ever before.
What makes our platform unique?
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 deliver them to market at the speed of the digital age.
The future of production
The result? High performance products made with less energy-intensive processes, reduced reliance on toxic chemicals, and moving away from the massive infrastructure of traditional manufacturing.
By partnering with nature, we can not only make better products, but also make a better world.
How we do it
Our patented platform fuses molecular biology, data science, automation, and genomics to design and deliver breakthrough molecules, microbes, and materials.
The opportunity is enormous, and our approach is strategic. We focus on industries where biology can make a better product, create new value for customers, and leverage quick development cycles.
Supremely specialized materials for therapeutics, diagnostics, and more–beginning with key enzymes for mRNA vaccines
Developing safer crop protection, farming, and pest control
High-performance polymers for additive manufacturing to unlock new capabilities across a variety of industries like aerospace, automotive, and transportation
Making our ever-evolving devices more renewably
Bio-inspired solutions for greener paper-based food packaging
Next-generation materials in 3D manufacturing
We unlock new capabilities in aerospace, automotive, and transportation by developing polymers for additive manufacturing that enable innovators to quickly bring breakthrough products to market. Our biomanufacturing platform efficiently finds and makes materials capable of performing under previously challenging heat and mechanical loads.
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
Expanding design possibilities
Our Z-film franchise launched in 2020 with an electronic film with best-in-class properties in optical transparency and strength. And we continue exploring applications in electronics beyond the films segment.
Speeding high-tech healthcare materials to market
The pandemic has shown us how millions of lives and hospitalizations can be saved by quickly getting vaccines to market. We’re making the key enzymes needed for a new generation of mRNA vaccines, and that’s just the beginning.
Greener, superior packaging for food and beyond
Zymergen finds and makes bio-based solutions for paper packaging to enable greener packaging and a better customer experience. Our materials have the potential to provide higher water repellency, higher mechanical strength in wet conditions, and better biodegradability and recyclability than incumbent paper products.
