CodeEvolver® and CodeXporter®
The National Academy of Engineering awards Frances H. Arnold and Willem P.C. Stemmer the prestigious Charles Stark Draper Prize for directed evolution.
CodeEvolver®: Designed to work at industrial scale
The Codexis CodeEvolver® directed evolution technology platform lays the groundwork for delivery of a fast, cost-advantaged process that results in the development of enzymes and microorganisms that are custom designed to enable the relevant manufacturing process. For example, Codexis customizes enzymes to optimize and accelerate chemical reactions at industrial scale and lower cost. With more than a decade of experience in deploying biobased solutions to industry, Codexis can accelerate your company's switch to scalable, alternative sustainable methods that can deliver significant cost savings and strategic advantage.
CodeXporter®: Designed for precise customer requirements
A key component of Codexis technology is the CodeXporter® enzyme production platform, used for highly productive and efficient industrial-scale enzyme manufacturing. Codexis uses the CodeXporter® enzyme production platform in the production of biobased products such as biofuels and consumer products.
Carbon Capture: Using Enzymes to Reduce CO2
In an important application of our technology platform, Codexis is developing carbon capture enzymes to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants, and to convert carbon dioxide into useful end products such as nutrient rich fertilizer in collaboration with Alcoa. Codexis carbon capture technology is funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy ARPA-E program. Codexis carbon capture technology was one of 37 research projects recognized by DOE that, "could fundamentally change the way the country uses and produces energy." Recent data from the DOE program show Codexis technology has improved carbon capture performance by about two-million-fold over natural forms of the enzyme.
