Neoplants presents an exciting, first of its kind solution to tackle indoor air pollution by designing plants for the future.
Indoor air pollution is up to five times higher than outdoors, and we spend 90% of our time inside. The Parisian Biotech startup is pioneering the development of bioengineered plants that capture and transform volatile organic compounds (VOCs), the main indoor air pollutants.
Using gene editing techniques, Neoplants wants to magnify the power of nature to help heal our environment. In the long term, its ambition is to leverage technology for other large-scale applications such as carbon capture and storage.
