We make bacteria and plants that clean up pollution.
How to clean up industrial pollution is one of the greatest unmet challenges of the 21st century. At BluumBio, we engineer bacteria and plants to eat toxic chemicals. Oil and mining companies use our products to clean up and restore contaminated sites. To date, we created strains that can degrade petroleum hydrocarbons, PCBs, PFAS, heavy metals and microplastics. We also achieved regulatory approval to field trial our products. We are also in the process of obtaining our first five R&D contracts worth >$20M. Field-application of our products costs $1-2M per year per site. The cost of treating Superfund, military, and landfill sites in the US alone is worth >$40B annually. At BluumBio, we are building a future where biodiversity thrives and everyone has access to clean soil, water and air.
