BUILDING THE FUTURE
The supply of in-demand and valuable compounds is increasingly threatened by environmental change, habitat destruction, and unsustainable harvesting methods. Petrochemical providers are under increasing economic, regulatory, societal and moral pressure to reduce toxic emissions and pollutants.
The ability to read and write DNA has provided unprecedented power to use biology as a manufacturing technology. We have developed a platform underpinned by proprietary methods to engineer light-driven cyanobacteria biofactories at large scale.
Our cyanobacteria strains offer fast, controllable growth, robustness and ease of genetic manipulation. We use this power to create a flexible, scalable, customisable solution to produce high-value compounds, while simultaneously capturing and utilizing carbon to create an elegant circular bioeconomy.
Our solar biomanufacturing approach produces clean and sustainable products across a range of markets including, agriculture, aquaculture, fragrances, cosmetics, flavors, food, nutraceuticals & pharmaceuticals.
OUR CYANOBACTERIAL CHASSIS
Cyanobacteria (more commonly known as blue-green algae) are highly efficient natural 'carbon sinks' accounting for about 10% of global carbon fixation and are thought to be the first photosynthetic organism and to be the origin of the chloroplasts which allow photosynthesis in plants.
Cyanobacteria offer many benefits as a biomanufacturing platform: high growth-rate & biomanufacturing productivity, robustness and relatively straight-forward genetic manipulation. We have developed proprietary methods for the manipulation and utilization of photosynthetic cyanobacteria, allowing us to design and build cyanobacterial strains at a world-leading pace.
We have developed Cyanoworks™, a world-first high-throughput cyanobacterial strain engineering platform, enabling a speed and breadth of metabolic engineering of cyanobacteria strains not previously realised anywhere in the world.
ADVANCED LIGHT AND CO2-DRIVEN BIOMANUFACTURING
There are a number of recent technology advances that Bondi combines in its Cyanoworks™ platform, as a new and innovative approach to making solar biomanufacturing commercially viable. For many important compounds, ingredients and chemicals, our solar biomanufacturing approach achieves higher growth rates and better product yields in an environmentally sustainable way by using the power of light and CO2 to drive photosynthetic growth.
Renewable electricity and LED light technologies have made extraordinary advances in efficiency and cost over the last few decades making solar biomanufacturing a powerful new growth opportunity.
Our biological conversion technology is agnostic to the CO2 source and can be integrated seamlessly with other CO2 capture and sequestration technologies, such as direct air capture or point-sources of gaseous CO2 or carbonated wastewater.
Our cyanobacteria strains are resilient to extreme conditions such as high salinity, phosphate or nitrate content, allowing their use in a wide variety of locations and conditions, making it possible for Bondi’s solar biomanufacturing to utilize wastewater from the energy, mining or agriculture industry or fracking streams.
