The next century belongs to the gene, the fundamental unit of biology. Biology can perform interesting and varied chemistries that when fully leveraged present simple solutions to complex everyday problems. At String, we leverage, design, engineer and optimize the power of biology to enable solutions in sectors that are fundamental to living.
Green house gases such as methane and carbon dioxide (or CH4 and CO2), have been largely looked at as waste or by-products. Using a patented fermentation platform, String is re-defining these waste gases as valuable raw materials to make an array of high-performance products, from food to cosmetics. By utilizing the energy present in GHGs as the core of our solution - we strive to make the manufacturing and commercialization of carbon neutral, or often carbon negative products, the norm.
While mankind has been debating sustainability since the late 80s, even today, this is an afterthought in how we produce, manufacture and consume. Through our technological innovations we strive to ensure that sustainability is market relevant - that it is not only inherent in our manufacturing but also that it is cost conscious. Our cycles of design, engineer and test are constrained by performance, value addition and sustainability.
We work at the forefront of biology, engineering and chemistry leveraging the tremendous advances that have happened in each of these areas over the last decade. We train ourselves to address problem from first principles and leverage cutting edge technical breakthroughs to build our solutions. We believe the power of technology is only realised when it can becomes an innovation that enables better living.
String is a team of innovators. We believe in making bold bets. What started as a crazy idea is now a platform with a wide array of paradigm changing solutions. To enable the right solution at the right cost, we have patiently worked to redefine the substrate, the process and the products. For us, it has been heartening to see that the consumers adapt to bold bet solutions when the right solution is provided at the right cost.
