Designing algae to improve the health of the planet
Synthetic Genomics is recognized in ExxonMobil’s latest campaign on algae biofuels.
“ExxonMobil is getting closer to growing algae biofuels that could one day power planes, propel ships, and fuel trucks…and cut their emissions in half.”
At a farm in California’s Imperial Valley, Synthetic Genomics and ExxonMobil are cultivating acres of energy-rich algae, working day and night toward the technical ability to produce 10,000 barrels a day of low-emission algae biofuel by 2025.
Dan Gibson, VP of DNA Technology, spoke at TED about how the world’s first “biological teleporter” may change how medicines are delivered on-demand
Utilizing sunlight and CO2 to generate algal bio-products.
Developing scalable, low-carbon algal biofuel.
Minimizing pollution, freshwater use, and land utilization.
Combining our algal engineering expertise with ExxonMobil’s expertise and ability to deploy at large-scale.
In partnership with ExxonMobil, we’re growing algae biofuels to one day power planes, propel ships and fuel trucks—ultimately offering the potential to cut emissions in half.
