Biosynthetic Monomers & Polymers

Penelope Mimetics is a research and development partnering company that is focused on the engineering of improved biological systems for the purposes of industrial manufacturing.

We offer a collaborative infrastructure for research and development that uses the tools of synthetic biology to develop technologies to create new monomers and functionalized biosynthetic polymers, additives and treatments for new types of sustainably-derived materials.

We partner with manufacturers, brands, non-profits, and universities in a collaborative process to develop synthetic biology solutions that address industry pain-points related to the growing demand for the safe and efficient use of energy and natural resources as well as the responsible delivery of new industrial products that protect human and environmental health.

We are focused on customer needs in the gradual transition from petroleum-based chemistry manufacturing to industrial biology over the next five to ten years. We believe that the industrialization of biology for chemical manufacturing can best be achieved via partnerships between multiple stakeholders.
