Company details

ZymoChem is reimagining the microbe, one that is designed to eliminate (or substantially reduce) carbon loss during the production of chemicals. To do this, we have designed a completely new biosynthetic pathway—one that doesn’t exist in nature—to make the chemicals. Each individual step of this pathway is designed to not lose carbon as carbon dioxide, enabling a biosynthetic pathway to retain all of the sugar’s carbon into the final chemical product.
