Strain Engineering for C2 Platform Chemical

CD Biosynsis provides development and optimization services for the biosynthesis of C2 platform chemicals using genetic engineering and metabolic engineering technologies. We are committed to working with our partners to increase the yield of C2 platform chemicals through biosynthesis methods and to develop more biochassis that can be used for C2 platform chemical production.

Advantages of Synthetic Biology-Driven C2 Platform Chemical Production

Synthetic biology-driven C2 platform chemical production enables the conversion of biomass into a variety of basic chemical feedstocks, replacing unsustainable feedstocks with sustainable ones and reducing carbon emissions while maintaining chemical performance. Synthetic biology has distinct advantages over traditional chemical synthesis. Currently, synthetic biology approaches are available for the production of C2 platform chemicals including ethanol, ethylene, ethylene glycol, and acetic acid.
