Our multi-disciplinary team consists of internationally renowned researchers who work at the interface of biology and engineering and share a common vision: to use the most advanced and innovative biotechnology to address urgent societal needs in energy, environment, and health.
Discovery, design, and development of biocatalysts and bioprocesses.
Production of Bioproducts and Biofuels
BioZone discovers enzymes to develop bioprocesses to synthesize chemicals, biofuels, and plastics from renewable bio-based carbon sources, thereby reducing reliance on fossil fuels.
Bioremediation and Wastewater Treatment
BioZone uses enzymes, microbes, and microbial communities to remove organic contaminants from subsurface environments, waste waters, and industrial processes.
BioZone uses genomics and synthetic biology to understand and improve human, industrial, and environmental microbiomes.
BioZone discovers, designs, and characterizes enzymes for applications in industrial biotechnology
BioZone employs technoeconomic assessment and life cycle analysis to understand how its biotechnologies interact with the systems in which they operate.
Training the next generation of Engineers and leaders
BioZone aims to provide world class scientific training and equip students with the knowledge and ability to shape the public policy that affects our environment and well being.
Microbial, Enzymatic, and Molecular Testing
BioZone provides a wide range of fee-for-service analyitical testing, including a mass spectrometry facility.
Idea through to Implementation
BioZone unites researchers involved in all stages of taking an idea from the lab to commercial application, so that viable technologies can be developed in the context of technical, economic and public policy constraints.
