Project: ReSource Chemical—Plastic from CO2 & inedible biomass

Bio: While studying chemistry in Prof. Matt Kanan’s lab at Stanford, Aanindeeta Banerjee invented a new process for carbon dioxide utilization with applications in polymer and commodity chemical production. After earning her Ph.D. she continued developing the technology and co-founded ReSource Chemical with Matt Kanan to replace plastics made from petroleum with carbon-dioxide-derived plastics that offer superior performance at lower cost.
