What Genomatica is doing to make 100% bio-based nylon a reality

January 25, 2019 | Case Study

Genomatica is a synthetic biology company that develops and licenses fermentation-based routes for the production of bio-based intermediate and specialty chemicals from sugars. It employs modeling techniques (digital twinning of the fermentation process) to decrease the number of necessary test runs for scale-up, reducing the time and cost to develop new molecules. While the company has successfully demonstrated its 1,4-butanediol and 1,3-butylene glycol platforms over the past few years, it is currently focused on advancing its process for nylon intermediates like caprolactam (CPL).
