Who we are
At Genomines, our mission is to pioneer a new era of sustainable mining by using genetically enhanced plants to extract metals from the ground (agromining). Through synthetic biology and cutting-edge technology, we harness the power of nature to create bioengineered plants that can farm for metals while decontaminating soil and creating cleaner lands for agriculture. Our ultimate goal is to become the world's first carbon-negative mining group, using sustainable, eco-friendly methods to extract the valuable resources our society needs.
