Jobs at C16 Biosciences

Palm oil is everywhere - it's found in 50% of products on supermarket shelves, from shampoo to nutella, making it a $60 billion industry. But palm oil is burning the planet. The industry single-handedly drives 10% of CO2 emissions as tropical rainforests are cleared to make way for palm oil plantations.

Over 250 companies and 9 countries have committed to removing 'conflict' palm oil from their supply chains. C16 Bio makes bio-based palm oil and palm oil derivatives that look and function just like palm oil and are 20% cheaper.

C16 Bio provides a sustainable alternative to palm oil by using microbial fermentation to convert sustainable carbon streams into lipids which match or beat the performance of palm oil.

We are a Y Combinator and venture capital backed company based in Somerville, MA.
