Photanol

Photanol BV is a platform renewable chemical company that utilises proprietary engineered cyanobacteria to process carbon dioxide (CO2) and sunlight into valuable chemical products. Biobased chemicals have faced challenges in continued penetration of the US$3trn+ global chemicals market, relating to low fossil fuel prices, land/food conflicts, and major supply chain constraints. Cyanobacteria offer a much simpler, renewable pathway for chemical production, and have the potential to emerge as the sustainable production platform for next-generation clean chemicals.
 
Our cyanobacteria can produce a broad range of compounds, 17 pathways have been proven at lab scale; two organic acids pathways (combined addressable market of US4.4bn) are currently being developed with partners and are presently undergoing pilot plant testing.
