Biosynthetic Monomers & Polymers

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

We use 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.

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 petroleum-based chemistry manufacturing to industrial biology.
