Replacing petroleum-based chemicals with plant-derived alternatives

Replacing petroleum-based chemicals with plant-derived alternatives

Solugen is a venture-backed biotech startup that replaces petroleum based products with plant-derived substitutes. The award winning technology was developed in-house by a team of doctors, scientists and engineers from MIT. We challenge the traditional approach to chemicals production, which is capital intensive, dangerous, environmentally unfriendly and unchanged since 1942. Our patented approach takes advantage of bio-inspired reactions to use plant material as a low-cost feedstock to produce novel products.
