CEO Trevon Gordon
"In the future, I don't think we'll look for a needle in a haystack when trying to find an organism that breaks down XYZ material but rather screen and drive organisms towards a state where they can do the work that you want them to do."
More than 95 percent of the U.S. population has PFAS in their bodies, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Environmental Contaminants such as PFAS and plastic resist natural degradation and have devastating effects on health and the environment. Though governments have known about these environmental contaminants for some time, federal regulation falls far short of what’s required to protect communities and the future of our planet.

Vader Nanotech’s work is aimed at improving our ability to recycle plastic and degrade forever chemicals by creating new organisms and enzymes that break down these pollutants. Their approach utilizes automation, image-processing & computer vision, and analytical chemistry to select for organisms with the ability to grow on PFAS and other difficult-to-break-down chemicals as a sole carbon source. Using directed evolution techniques they optimize these organisms and improve their performance.
