Biosynthetic Monomers & Polymers

Penelope Mimetics is a research and development partner.

We use the tools of molecular and synthetic biology to co-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 new synthetic and molecular 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 both human and environmental health.

Accordingly, in our research and development projects, we are focused on the next five to ten years of customer needs in the gradual transition from industrialized petroleum-based chemistries to chemical manufacturing through new biological routes.
