At Allied Microbiota, we identify microbes for their ability to break down pollutants or produce sustainable bio-products. We culture them and optimize their growth protocols. Our technology platform uses the latest advances in biotechnology and systems engineering to transform fermentation into a process that is controllable to produce products at low-cost and large scale.
Discover, develop, manufacture and commercialize next generation biocatalytic technologies in remediation and biochemical industries
Allied Microbiota was found to bring low-cost sustainable solutions to treat these recalcitrant pollutants using environmentally friendly microbial solutions. Founded in 2017 by Dr. Ray Sambrotto and Frana James from Columbia University, Allied Microbiota has developed methods of bioremediation using naturally isolated bacterial cultures and their enzymes for remediation of soil, sediments and groundwater using techniques like composting, and flow through reactors. Offering great advantages to expensive treatments for recalcitrant remediation like incineration and moving to a classified landfills, our microbes destroy recalcitrant contamination, providing users with remarkable cost savings, reducing PCB levels by 80 percent in few days. We are also expanding our focus on improving the fermentation process and strain development to develop new bio-chemicals and enzymes for industrial and environmental applications
Allied Microbiota's founding and success has been supported by NYSERDA's PowerBridgeNY, one of two Proof-Of-Concept Centers (POCC) that the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), supports. We are also working with the Clean Energy Business Incubator Program(CEBIP) at Stony Brook.
Our technology focuses on screening and selection of strains and enzymes and optimizing the production protocols for environmental and industrial applications
