Company details

At Nyoka, we engineer proteins to generate safe, sustainable, and stable light based on the phenomena of bioluminescence. Our mission is to replace the toxic $9B chemiluminescence industry and expand the possibilities of light. The chemical light industry generates over 250 million tonnes of carcinogenic waste every year. We can replace and improve this essential chemistry with our non-toxic and biodegradable technology. We are developing applications ranging from commercial fishing, healthcare, aerospace, search and rescue, and more.
