The problem of a polluted, unclean and harmful environment is a dire one facing the citizens of the 21st century. Globally we generate 1.2 trillion kilograms of waste every year. We live with the highest concentration of greenhouse gases in the last 800,000 years. The global cost of dealing with waste is also rising, $205 billion a year in 2010 to $375 billion by 2025, with the sharpest cost increases in developing countries.
Imagine a world where this waste is not wasted. Imagine a clean world that we would be proud to leave behind for our kids. Imagine leveraging waste and waste gases as a source to create value added products from bio-materials to bio-chemicals to food. We at String Bio, are working towards making this world a reality.
We combine pioneering advances in synthetic biology, fermentation technology and process engineering to deliver a solution that would work for centralized and de-centralized systems of waste. Our technology is waste agnostic, allowing us to work with municipal solid waste, agricultural waste, municipal sludge as well as natural gas, landfill gas or waste water treatment exhaust.
