Metabolic Technologies specializes in integrating existing technologies into cohesive products and services that fill a niche in the market. Our R&D efforts focus on the following areas:
Wherever people are, there is a need for water, sanitation, energy, food, and shelter. Our efforts focus on developing more effective and affordable ways to address these needs, whether for a festival, part of disaster relief efforts, remote tourism, or off-grid construction.
Resource recovery and smart management of valuable resources is key in a circular economy. We develop technology that enable the recycling of electronics in a phone, reusing nutrients in human waste, and other innovations that close the loop.
Sensors and micro-computing have revolutionized how we monitor, control, and integrate technologies. Metabolic develops monitoring systems, built on open-source platforms, that allow us to monitor usage and performance, automate system functions, and collect and analyze data.
Symbioculture, or symbiotic agriculture, is about engineering agricultural systems to mimic robust ecosystems. Metabolic combines technologies and ecological methods like polycropping, aeroponics, aquaculture, climate control systems, and built environments that change the way we produce food, fiber, and fuel.
How something is transported, disposed of, and recycled are integrally linked to how it is made. Digital and biological fabrication techniques are just the beginning of a broader revolution towards a more circular economy.
