A sustainable future,
powered by enzymes

The problem: Microbial factories

The CleanTech revolution was over before it began

In the early 2000s, dozens of startups spent billions trying to engineer microbial factories to produce bio-based and sustainable chemicals for the mass market. The microbial factories are inefficient, slow and unpredictable to scale, but the enzyme machinery inside is efficient, fast and scalable.

The solution: Cell-free systems

We use enzymes, the fundamental machinery responsible for all bio-based chemistry

"Cell-free" biocatalyst systems built from simplified enzyme machinery can run at 100% efficiency and can be reliably scaled up. Cell-free biocatalysts accept waste streams, which microbial factories will always struggle to do across geography and waste source. Cell-free biocatalysts are a truly global solution to sustainable chemistry.

Why will sustainable chemistry proliferate this time around?

Enzyme machinery is exponentially more powerful

Using high-throughput iteration and machine learning FabricNano can guide geometry and conformational dynamics to ensure enzyme function fits the industrial application. FabricNano has a standard process to engineer highly stable enzymes with ease.

What is an industrial biocatalyst?

Packing turbocharged enzymes inside traditional bioreactors

FabricNano attaches ("immobilizes") enzyme machinery onto solid carriers whilst retaining the highly coveted functionality. Data-driven "immobilization engineering" is a critical step to ensure performant enzyme machinery in the bioreactor. FabricNano has coined the phrase: "immobilization engineering".

What does it look like?

A generalisable drop-in biocatalyst for all industries

Describing a ‘magic powder’ might sound wide-eyed, and science fiction, but it's exactly what the freeze dried enzymes look like when immobilized on a solid support.

Is it easy to use?

Integrates into existing infrastructure with ease

FabricNano biocatalysts can be used in packed bed reactors (PBR) and continuous stirred-tank reactors (CSTR). Integration with pre-existing industry equipment and know-how (e.g. trained chemical engineers) allows these biocatalysts to scale quickly and make a profound sustainable impact on the material world.

Products under development

We collaborate with disruptive brands and corporates that are ready for innovation in sustainable material production and sourcing.

We’re looking to work with forward thinkers to help us shape a cell-free future.
