Bio-Conversion 

Bioconversion is a scalable process of GHG capture and transformation.

 Capture

The first step is the efficient capture of Carbon Dioxide, Methane and Nitrous Oxide from a

production facility or the atmosphere.

Conversion

Using a molecular pipeline, GHG molecules are split and reorganized. Targets include
lipids, sugars, bio monomers
and fertilizers.

Repurpose

To be sustainable, GHG is scaled up to create usable byproducts including to fuel, plastics, food,

or building materials.

Foundation

Mission

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.

Process

Feature Inputs
