Solving today’s challenges
for tomorrow’s generation

We are Allonnia, a bio-ingenuity company dedicated to extracting value where others see waste. We believe that elegant solutions to the world’s biggest problems will be found in the world’s smallest organisms. So, we’re pioneering novel approaches and imaginative combinations in biotechnology and engineering to solve waste challenges in nature, using nature.

Fast

nature

We focus on waste solutions, designing and deploying transformative biology solutions that combine the most effective enzymes, proteins, and microbes with advanced engineering systems to degrade or metabolize contaminants into upcycled, valuable materials.

Targeting breakthroughs on three vectors

remediation
REMEDIATION

Identifying, optimizing, and deploying microbes, enzymes and proteins to efficiently transform contaminants, and render them inert

upcycling
UPCYCLING

Converting waste into a high-value resource by breaking down, binding or extracting complex molecules to form new material building blocks

sensing
SENSING

Analyzing and evaluating waste streams to understand the presence of contaminants and other target compounds to inform the best solutions

Developing solutions to unlock
four global priorities

mining

Faced with increasing environmental challenges, mine operators have limited options for the efficient treatment and recycling of legacy assets.

OUR FOCUS

  • Waste Valorization — remediating sites while upcycling valuable metals
  • Energy Critical Elements — upcycling REE through binding metals from waste or recycle streams
  • Decarbonization — leveraging geologic assets to biologically sequester carbon

energy

With strict regulations, especially on water usage and disposal, today’s process water treatment solutions are inefficient and limit energy suppliers’ ability to recycle and discharge wastewater.

OUR FOCUS

  • Process Water Reclamation — degrading contaminants for detoxification and water reuse

industry

Manufacturing produces a range of unwanted contaminants that can have significant consequences on our land and water resources. Existing mechanical and chemical solutions fall short of the requirements needed to address industrial waste.


OUR FOCUS

  • Contaminant Biosensors — real-time identification of contaminants
  • Removal and Degradation of PFAS and Other Emerging Contaminants — sustainable treatment of contaminants for complete remediation

plastics

The explosive growth in plastics use is outstripping the development of adequate facilities and solutions to treat end-of-life plastic waste and by-products, resulting in an unsustainable overflow into landfills, oceans and waterways.


OUR FOCUS

  • Polyurethane Upcycling — degrading and upcycling polyols for reuse
  • Nylon Upcycling — degrading and upcycling into raw material monomers

Title

Our vision for a new
law of conservation

To create change, we’re writing a new law of conservation —
that waste is neither created nor destroyed — only transformed.
Through biology and imagination any solution is possible.

Naturally elegant

Perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are widely used, long lasting chemicals, which break down over time into contaminants that are extremely difficult to remediate, until now. 

Surface Active Foam Fractionation (SAFF®) is a proven solution that uses a natural process to efficiently remove 99+% of PFAS without the use of chemical or absorption media, yielding a low volume, high-density PFAS concentrate for destruction. 

In partnership with EPOC Systems, Allonnia is the exclusive distribution partner for SAFF in the US, Canada and Mexico, developing a fleet of SAFF units for lease and sale as well as the capability to perform benchtop treatability studies in their Boston laboratories.
