for the Bioeconomy

We collaborate with companies bringing next-generation bioproducts to market, helping them plan, expand and scale seamlessly.


Chart your roadmap toward commercialization and profitability.

Commercializing a bioproduct is complex, costly and requires precise planning. We work with companies – from startups to the Fortune 1000 – to create a roadmap that defines the commercial, technical and environmental benchmarks and milestones that matter. Synonym's expertise includes:

  • Life Cycle Assessment (LCA): Understand your product's carbon intensity and identify the levers to improve it.

  • FEL-1: Scope your biomanufacturing capacity needs before development with a conceptual engineering design study.


Find a CMO that fits your business and technical requirements.

Finding the right CMO or production partners can be a challenge. We leverage our industry-first digital tools and a global network of CMO partners to help companies secure capacity – whether for a few runs to several months of production – to meet their production needs. Synonym Match includes:

  • Targeted CMO Search: Find CMOs that fit your needs using Synonym’s specialized insights into CMO assets and availability.


Build turnkey infrastructure to produce at scale.

Success means scale, but undertaking a large capital project can be daunting. We work with companies to develop, finance, construct, and operate dedicated, modular fermentation facilities more cost effectively than any other option. Our development process includes:

  • Design: We develop detailed facility designs and CapEx and OpEX estimates customized to your bioprocess' requirements.

  • Finance: Our capital markets team will help you secure off-balance sheet financing and manage the incentive process to maximize funding.

  • Construction: We conduct site selection, engage EPCs and oversee all construction activities to ensure project completion.

  • Operations: If desired, we will operate the facility, including managing all staffing needs, to deliver a fully-functional plant for your business.
