An Emerging Global Solution
Few things are certain in life, but one constant remains: a finite supply of fossil fuels cannot sustain the needs of a world population of 7 billion people. The need for biofuels is rapidly evolving at a global scale.
With a limited natural supply and a growing global demand,synthetic biology provides emerging, alternative energy solutions. At Life Technologies, we’re partnering with the industry’s most forward-thinking organizations and employing the most innovative, rigorous, and robust tools on the market to provide comprehensive solutions to the biofuel industry to develop, optimize, and mass produce new, renewable energy sources.
