FirstIgnite is supporting the commercialization of Washington University in St. Louis’s decarbonized biomanufacturing technology, which efficiently and cost-effectively valorizes waste CO2. This technology allows for the manufacturing of bioplastics, chemicals, fuels, and proteins from CO2. Additionally, the technology includes enzyme-based electro-bio conversion engineering systems and carbon capture and delivery system design, resulting in rapid and efficient conversion of CO2 into value-added products. Techno-economic, life cycle, environmental, and social impact analyses are also conducted to improve the efficiency of CO2 conversion systems.
This technology is applicable to bulk chemical production, pharmaceutical production, food and beverage production, and any practice that yields high carbon emissions. The global chemical distribution market size is valued at $256.69 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $403.22 billion by 2030.
