Objective

Synbio4Arch intends to leverage the foreground generated in the FET project LIAR to develop a synthetic biology toolkit for architecture. The envisaged technology will allow engineers and architects to leverage microbes to embed distributed biomanufacturing, on-site domestic waste treatment and CO2 capturing into buildings. The innovation will consist in a cloud-based application that allows architects and engineers to select microbial strains engineered with pre-made and validated synthetic metabolic pathways relevant for household wastewater management such as organic compound oxidation and inorganic phosphate recycling. The innovation will allow practitioners in the construction field (such as engineers and architects) with little expertise in molecular biology to access the power of synthetic biology. Toward this aim, this launchpad proposal aims to assess regulatory barrier and develop a commercialization plan to exploit Explora’s proprietary doulix platform developed within the framework of the LIAR project.
