A proprietary process developed by Joule Biotechnologies. The process uses a genetically engineered photosynthetic organism to directly convert sunlight and CO2 to biofuels and chemicals.
Joule has engineered a proprietary photosynthetic organism that captures sunlight and metabolizes waste carbon to produce useful products. Joule discovered unique genes coding for enzymatic mechanisms that enable the direct synthesis of both alkane? and olefin? molecules – which are key chemical compounds in diesel?.
