“By discarding plastics after a single use, all the capital put in to extract and manufacture the plastic is lost. If we can find a way to turn that plastic into something useful, we’re closing the loop in the circular economy of plastics.”
Making any plastic biodegradable
Humankind has generated more than 9 billion tons of plastic, and 79% of this plastic ended up in a landfill.

Every year, 8 million tons of plastic end up in the oceans, while only 9% of plastic in the US is recycled. Current recycling methodologies have been unable to break down some of the most commonly produced plastics.

Scindo can recycle the unrecyclable. They are creating a novel biological platform for low-energy, green and economical recycling that turns low-value plastic waste into high-value compounds that can be used in a variety of industries. Specifically, they target some of the most-produced plastics globally that currently cannot be efficiently recycled, so we can put an end to plastics in landfills.

We're looking for a world where your disinfectants last longer than your deodorants.
Turning every surface into an antimicrobial surface.
15 minutes after cleaning a surface with bleach, the bleach disappears, and a surface can be recolonized by nearby microorganisms. Now ask yourself: how often are surfaces cleaned with disinfectants?

Halomine’s technology acts as a bleach extending agent. Their first product, HaloFilm™, is a simple spray that creates a thin-layer film to hold bleach molecules close to the surface. The film is safe to human touch and can be “recharged” with fresh bleach applications to maintain disinfection. HaloFilm™ extends surface disinfection against fungi, bacteria and viruses, including SARS-CoV-2.

We’re taking these components that exist within animal serum and producing them without animals.
Animal-free growth media for the cultivated meat industry.
Cultivated meat brings an 87% reduction in CO2 equivalent emissions, along with 96% less freshwater use and 99% less land use to produce the same amount of meat.

Multus Media develops the key ingredient to make cultivated meat affordable and profitable. Livestock agriculture contributes to 15% of all greenhouse gas emission globally which is more than the entire transportation sector combined. Cultivated meat brings an 87% reduction in CO2 equivalent emissions, along with 96% less freshwater use and 99% less land use to produce the same amount of meat. ​

This is why our mission is to design growth media that provides a collective benefit to the whole industry by lowering entry barriers, shortening routes to market, and supporting scale. Multus Media is accelerating the forefront of an industry that will replace the devastating impacts of livestock agriculture.

First we will win the war against mosquitoes, but our long-term goal is to free humanity from both pests and pesticides.
Fighting mosquitoes with mosquitoes
Mosquitoes kill nearly a million humans every year and infect 700 million more with diseases like Zika virus, malaria, and yellow fever.

Mosquito-borne diseases like dengue, Zika and malaria infect hundreds of millions every year. Global warming is driving these mosquitoes to spread rapidly, endangering many more.’s technology cuts the cost of sterile insect control (SIT) – a natural and highly efficient insect birth control method – to make it a widespread solution against mosquitoes. combines computer vision and deep biological knowledge to fight mosquitoes and their diseases. uses non-GMO technology that eliminates the need to build a mosquito rearing and sorting facility near every release site.

Bleeding causes a lot of negative outcomes for patients, so stopping the bleeding has many benefits. Not only are you saving their lives by reducing blood loss, but you can actually reduce the time it takes for them to heal as well.
Harnessing polyphosphate to treat serious bleeding
Across all sources of bleeding, the probability of death increases 1 % for every 3 minutes of uncontrolled hemorrhage.

Serious bleeding is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and outcomes are linked to how quickly hemostasis can be achieved. Excessive bleeding is a global threat that can affect all populations, but is especially critical for patients on anticoagulant therapy or those who have a rare bleeding disorder. Cayuga Biotech’s mission is to harness the potential of polyphosphate to address uncontrolled bleeding episodes.

CAY001 is a first-in-class drug which aims to accelerate the body’s natural clotting response even in patients with compromised platelet function. Unlike natural platelets, CAY001 is can be mass-manufactured, is stable at room temperature, and does not require type matching, allowing it to be deployed with first responders.

By fighting these bad bacteria, it gives the good bacteria room to colonize the vaginal area. This is what balances and promotes the good bacteria in the intimate area.
Next-generation microbiome femcare for a healthy urinary tract
50% of women will get a urinary tract infection during their lifetime.

P.Happi’s bioactive ingredient continuously protects, restores and balances your intimate skin. Our products calm your urogenital area which can be irritated and damaged by antibiotic therapies and harmful bacteria living in your gut and colonizing women’s intimate area. Unhealthy food, irritation, and changes in pH lead to reduced urogenital comfort making it easier for bad bacteria to grow on your skin.

P.Happi’s ACTIVE COMPONENT kills the harmful bacteria and activates the skin’s natural ability to repair and protect itself, thereby boosting your natural immune system to promote a healthy woman’s intimate microbiome.

We can make it cost effective to use an ingredient that benefits fish, farmer, and consumer.
Better feed for better fish
Aquaculture now accounts for more than 50% of the fish that we eat. Yet as fish farming has intensified, so too have the challenges.

Making eating healthy fish sustainable. BioFeyn’s goal is to produce the most sustainable and nutrient-packed farmed fish on the market by optimizing existing ingredients that are already proven to be safe and sustainable. We add value for farmers, feed suppliers, and the environment.

BioFeyn adapts nanotechnologies based on human medicine to deliver nutrients and natural disease preventatives to fish. BioFeyn is pioneering a targeted, modular, delivery mechanism (what we call a “Feyn”) for compounds and nutrients that can be adapted to meet the most critical needs in the industry.

ThermO+™ is an amazing natural microbe with the ability to break down really tough compounds like PAHs and PCBs. ThermO+™ effectively eats these compounds for lunch.
Turning brownfields into green fields
The more than 450,000 Brownfield sites and 1300 Superfund sites in the U.S. contain 100 billion tons of toxic soil—enough to cover New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania one-foot deep.

Allied Microbiota develops microbes to degrade environmental contaminants. Their technology can tackle the most recalcitrant organic pollutants and break them down into harmless byproducts. Allied Microbiota uses a proprietary microbial strain, ThermO+™, to eliminate polychlorobiphenyls (PCBs) and polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), prominent soil contaminants, and dioxins, a prominent water contaminant. Treating contaminated sites restores land value and promotes businesses to build on formerly unusable land.
