The production of chemicals has gradually developed into a multi-industry and multi-variety production department, mainly through the use of chemical reactions to change the structure, composition, and form of substances to produce chemical products, including basic chemicals, plastics, synthetic fibers, petroleum, and rubber. In order to meet the needs of chemical production, there are many types of chemical equipments, and at the same time, the operating conditions of equipments are also very complicated. Most of the media during the production of industrial chemicals are corrosive, flammable, explosive, and highly toxic. In the production process, a large amount of toxic substances will be produced, causing water pollution and air pollution. In addition to the dangers and high pollution of the production process, the products of the chemical industry are often difficult to degrade, which has caused serious damage to the earth's ecological environment. However, petrochemical products are ubiquitous in daily life, which determines the universality of petrochemical-based materials in many aspects of modern society. DNA-related biotechnology can effectively alleviate these problems. For example, people can treat wastewater pollution and produce industrial chemicals through genetically modified bacterias, and directly replace traditional plastics with degradable plastic products through DNA synthesis. The application of DNA technology to industrial production is very beneficial to environmental protection.
Fig.1 Pollution in the production of industrial chemicals
The pollution in the production process of industrial chemicals is mainly caused by the waste gas and wastewater discharged during the production process and the non-degradability of the products. Our high-throughput htDNA-chip® DNA synthesis technology platform can start from two aspects. On the one hand, we can start treating sewage. On the other hand, we can devote ourselves to producing degradable materials that can replace traditional industrial chemicals. In the production process of industrial chemicals, htDNA-chip® technology platform can be applied to the following aspects, including chemicals from transgenic bacterias, chemicals from DNA synthesis and the DNA way to solve industrial pollution.
Through htDNA-chip® technology platform, you can design genetically engineered bacterias suitable for the production of various chemicals. Based on the high throughput of our technology platform, htDNA-chip® allows you to repeatedly verify and improve the designed bacterias. htDNA-chip® has improved the chemical production process and is environmentally friendly.
Through htDNA-chip® technology platform and according to the method of direct cross-linking of DNA into degradable plastics, you can realize the mass production of DNA-based environmentally friendly plastics, films and gels. The high-throughput htDNA-chip® can synthesize hundreds of DNA strands for you in a single run, which can greatly promote the production and application of DNA-based degradable plastic products.
Through htDNA-chip® technology platform, you can screen out specific genetic engineering bacterias for heavy metal wastewater treatment and wastewater treatment containing toxic chemicals. The high-throughput htDNA-chip® allows the customization and cultivation of a large number of genetically engineered bacterias. htDNA-chip® can cultivate genetically engineered bacterias to decompose toxic and hazardous substances into harmless or useful substances to achieve environmental pollution control.
