WHAT DOES ANODYNE DO?
Anodyne combines synthetic biology with electrochemistry to deliver enzymatic electrolysis, a low carbon, low temperature method to produce chemicals from emissions. Anodyne harnesses biology to make low carbon chemicals. We employ enzymes, nature’s factories, to deliver products with incredible efficiency. We can do this because we figured out how to simplify and control a traditionally complex and difficult process. Now we’re building a platform that will allow us to replicate this process to produce the fossil-free fuels, chemicals and pharmaceuticals we will need for generations to come.
WHAT IS ANODYNE?
Anodyne is a synthetic biotechnology and renewable chemical company focusing on the production of sustainable chemicals.
WHY DOES ANODYNE DO WHAT THEY DO?
Historically one of the toughest sectors of the economy to decarbonize, the $6 trillion chemicals industry is responsible for roughly 10% of global energy consumption and 20% of all industrial greenhouse gas emissions. Pollution is produced at every step in production, from fossil-derived feedstocks to processing to transportation. On top of that, many chemicals are notoriously unsafe to make.
WHERE IS ANODYNE?
Anodyne is a Canadian-based startup with operations in Vancouver and Burnaby. The markets where we will operate typically have large point source emissions, access to low cost electricity and a domestic market for chemical production.
