Engineering biology for a sustainable world

As we look for ways to protect our environment and support the health of billions across the globe, we turn to nature’s own processes to provide the answers.

Biotechnology is enabling us to find new and more sustainable ways to produce chemicals, materials, and everyday products, by understanding and harnessing biological processes and applying them at industrial scales.

By engineering biology, we can create more environmentally friendly agricultural products, produce human therapeutics quickly and at a lower cost, and reduce carbon emissions from key industries while also divesting those industries from petrochemical feedstocks. 

Supported by the internationally recognised Ƶapp Institute of Biotechnology, our 400+ experts are innovating solutions to key challenges in environmental sustainability, clean energy, health, and sustainable manufacturing.
