Team:UC Davis -


AmberCycle Industries is building an integrated renewable products company. Founded in 2012 and based in Davis, CA, we use breakthrough science and an innovative business model to address some of our planet’s most daunting problems.

We first developed our technology under the initiation of the project for the 2012 International Genetically Engineered Machines Competition to engineer pathways for the degradation of PET, a widely used material. We are now applying our industrial synthetic biology platform to provide alternatives to a broad range of petroleum-sourced products. Biocycling renewable fuels and chemicals are being designed to perform comparably to, or better than, the products they will replace. AmberCycle Industries is establishing the partnerships and capabilities needed to bring our products to market, and to distribute these products directly to customers.
