As the world progresses with newer inventions and manufacturing, so does the amount of pollution present on our planet. This has made it necessary to develop new processes that offer more efficient and cost-effective ways of both preventing pollution and dealing with the existing incidences of contamination.
Allied Microbiota (AMB), an industrial and environmental biotechnology firm, is tackling the problem by using the capabilities of selected microbes and their enzymes to clean up environmental contamination and address additional problems in environmental sustainability.
A spin-off from Columbia University, AMB uses the latest tools in synthetic biology, nano-materials and environmental engineering to create novel biological pathways, organisms and devices, resulting in applications in pollution remediation as well as sustainable industrial chemicals. Its products are capable of degrading recalcitrant organic pollutants in soil and sediments and emerging contaminants in groundwater. The company’s goal is to destroy pollutants in soils and sediments, reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and create energy efficient industrial chemicals.
