Sustainable Products and Processes

Intrexon is working to engineer biological solutions that are aimed to preserve the environment and either reduce the use of resources that are being rapidly depleted, like water and wood, or in some case to even replenish them. Examples include microbial-based approaches to pest and rodent control with minimal impact on non-target species and solutions that can enhance the healthy growth of planned forests, reducing the burden on our world’s shrinking natural forests. Often, these biological solutions will replace products that present an environmental hazard.
