Ultra Fast Enzyme Engineering
From materials to medicines, chemical manufacture is a multi-trillion-dollar global industry. But industrial chemistry poses many problems – with high energy demands, use of hazardous chemicals and the need to mine scarce metallic catalysts. As it stands, it is simply unsustainable for our planet.
However Nature holds a solution – Enzymes. These biocatalysts are molecular scale biological factories that are able to synthesize new chemicals and materials – with far less waste, under much milder conditions and reduced costs.
Our mission is to radically accelerate the speed and reliability that enzymes can be engineered to suit a new process – and help transform chemical manufacture into a sustainable industry.
We are a spin-out company from the University of Manchester. Founded by an expert team of enzyme engineers and computational biologists. Our HQ is located in the heart of Manchester, the historic centre of the World’s first Industrial revolution, and Imperagen will be at the centre of the next industrial ‘Bio’ revolution.
