Synthetic Biology Commercialization is an interdisciplinary area that focuses on planning and strategy commercialization is the study to build newly developed biological systems, with the focus on taking parts of natural biological systems, cataloging, characterizing, and simplifying them, and then using them as components of some engineered biological system. So, while industrial biotechnology provides tools to enhance the natural mechanisms of biological processes that produce enzymes, chemicals, polymers, or everyday products like vitamins and fuel, synthetic biology might be used to identify and catalog standardized genomic parts used to build new biological systems or to engineer microbes to produce the enzymes to perform complex multistep production of natural products.
Synthetic biology is a rapidly emerging field that applies science and engineering principles to biology, resulting in the design and fabrication of biological components and systems that do not already exist in the natural world. Synthetic biology is used in numerous fields such as biotechnology, chemical, biological and molecular engineering. Many new food products, agricultural actives, cosmetic ingredients, and human microbiome products are on the forefront of development that improves health and, in many circumstances, reduce carbon emissions impacting climate change. The term “biofuel” refers to solid, liquid, or gaseous fuel produced through some contemporary biological process. Biofuels replace petroleum, gasoline, and diesel. Synthetic biology provides scientists with a path toward rapid development of these renewable fuels via biological systems. Synthetic biology has developed rapidly over the last decade with many highly efficient and practical synthetic biology tools being developed and applied to biofuel development that can significantly reduce carbon emissions. Our subject matter experts have both the fermentation experience and downstream process experience to guide clients through the pilot, demonstration, and commercial processes of products.
As synthetic biology is often a combination of biological and chemical components, the synthetic biology team must have both backgrounds, together with engineers who can design and build the systems. Large renewable energy and biochemical consulting firms certainly have experts in synthetic biotechnologies and their commercialization, as well as bio and renewable fuels, biomass and biomass power, feedstocks, biomaterials, and biochemicals. They will also likely have expertise in technologies like agitation systems, anaerobic digestion, beverage fermentation, bio-oil extraction, bioreactors, carbon capture, carbon storage, carbonization, catalysis, cellulosic ethanol, cleantech, combined heat and power, direct combustion, enzyme technologies, fermentation, Fischer-Tropsch, gasification, genetic engineering, hydrothermal, nanotechnology, organosynthesis, power generation, pyrolysis, renewable technology due diligence, synthetic biology, thermochemical conversion, torrefaction, water treatment, and waste management.
Lee Enterprises Consulting (LEC) offers a wide range of services in biofuels, biochemicals, biotechnologies, biomaterials, synthetic biology commercialization, and feedstocks. The company has business and financial services like due diligence, feedstock availability, grants and loans, and bio market research. The company also offers technical and engineering-related services like techno-economic analysis, environmental evaluations, feasibility studies, risk analysis, and expert witness engagements.
