We believe that the climate crisis requires sustainable solutions at scale. So, we target ingredients and materials across some of the largest industries that have some of the most harmful, polluting or complex supply chains to show that you can instead have responsibly sourced, transparent, and traceable products — made from the sustainable source. Geno focuses our technology to only design sustainable materials that at scale can have a real (and really big) impact.

Our technology powers many of the materials used in the products you use, wear or eat every day. We strongly believe that the process of making every material can be redesigned to be better for our planet.

innovation

Innovation can often be the driver of industrial transformations and that is the case for the materials transition. Our technology and capabilities, developed and honed over two decades, harness the ever-increasing power of biotechnology, where microorganisms and industrial processes are designed to ferment plant sugars into materials and ingredients. Geno Innovation Center is home to our world-class research and development team of engineers and scientists who have deployed more than $300 million in technology investment, collaborating to create a portfolio of 1,800 patents and applications. The IP covers product pathways, synthetic biology approaches to engineering microorganisms, processes to bio-manufacture products, their sometimes-unique biological compositions and product applications. We work closely with some of the world’s leading brands to develop solutions that align superior performance and economics with sustainability. We produce and market our own branded products. In addition, we license our Geno technology to some of the world's largest manufacturers including Novamont and Qore® (a joint venture of Cargill and HELM).
