Bioconversion is a scalable process of GHG capture and transformation.
The first step is the efficient capture of Carbon Dioxide, Methane and Nitrous Oxide from a
production facility or the atmosphere.
Using a molecular pipeline, GHG molecules are split and reorganized. Targets include
lipids, sugars, bio monomers
To be sustainable, GHG is scaled up to create usable byproducts including to fuel, plastics, food,
or building materials.
A system of datasets and tools for synthetic biological engineering.
To develop communities of interest as needed to search for, evaluate, understand, modify, promote and inspire an interest in the industrial biotechnology applications.
Own, operate or manage facilities and store biological samples, DNA analysis, modelling, genetics, prototyping, product development and commercialization services.
Facilitate, fund and manage databases, catalogues, knowledge-sharing platforms, research projects/programs and networking.
A centre of knowledge for identifying, evaluating and developing organisms and building blocks to support the development of bioconversion processes and industries.
To publicize and promote the potential and benefits associated with bioconversion and biomimicry as a future source of commercial opportunities and economic development.
A non-profit organization promoting and enabling the use of engineered genetics.
To search, identify, document, evaluate, understand and model the characteristics, genetics, physical and chemical functions and living environment influencing the development and evolution of bioorganisms associated with capturing, processing, transforming and utilizing matter.
DNA, codons, proteins, 3D structure and biological pathways are the defining characteristics of cells.
Cells perform countless chemical functions, each exquisitely optimized by nature for efficiency.
Over billions of years, nature has created countless types of bacteria, from insignificant to extremophiles.
Organisms, Inputs and Functionality come together as an immense parts list to power synthetic biology.
People and Products
Ultimately, people work together to apply the tools of the BioConversion Databank Foundation to develop organisms and production processes and services in a wide range of applications.
Bio-Conversion is built upon a shared vision of business and technical leaders.
