manufacturing the greenest Lego Bricks!

StyGreen is bio-plastic produced out of recycled toilet paper.

Fossil fuels are depleting, and CO2 levels are rising:

The plastic production plays a significant role in this process.

Can we use recycled toilet paper to generate glucose?

Our Integrated models say;

we can!

Let’s design a yeast!

How would this look under a computational microscope?

Large amounts of glucose, what can we do with it?

Give our yeast tools to create styrene, by knocking out unnecessary pathways.

Scale up to save the world!
