Soane Labs has devoted significant research efforts to the energy industry, focusing on technologies to make oil and gas recovery more efficient and cost effective. Most recently, our spin-off company, Transform Materials has developed a novel process for green hydrogen generation and clean chemical precursor production from abundant natural gas. https://www.transformmaterials.com
Our understanding of surface chemistry and molecular self-assembly allows us to enhance papermaking and paper coating processes, improving efficiency and creating new products in ways not achievable with traditional methods. We will launch a near-term spin off, Soane Materials, devoted to optimal biomass utilization with the goal of reducing single-use plastics and green-house-gas emission by simplifying product distribution.
Soane Labs is applying its understanding of protein structures and surface interactions to developing next-generation formulation technologies for biotherapeutics. Our spin-off company, Camera Life Sciences, has created a broad spectrum excipient platform that addresses the problems of viscosity and stability for biotherapeutic molecules. https://comeralifesciences.com
Soane Labs brings materials science to the agriculture industry, developing sustainable products that enhance crop production. Our spin-off company, Crop Enhancement, is commercializing a physical barrier coating that provides crop protection without toxic pesticides. https://crop-enhancement.com
Soane Labs, its affiliates, and its spin-out companies are committed to ethical behavior in activities having environmental, social, or corporate governance (ESG) impact. Our activities affecting the environment strive for the preservation of our natural world. Our activities affecting society recognize the importance of personhood and of human interdependence. Our activities affecting corporate governance integrate principles of legal and ethical responsibility into the DNA of our business organizations.
Soane Labs and the Soane family of companies aim to create long-lasting ventures that benefit the environment while seeking profitability for our stakeholders and our business partners. We do this by developing cutting-edge technologies to solve persistent problems within mature industries that have environmental and social impact. For example, such industries have historically tended to consume inordinate amounts of energy and nonrenewable resources to manufacture and distribute conventional products. At Soane Labs, we offer science-based alternatives to these processes, to satisfy customer needs while minimizing environmental impact.
At Soane Labs and within the Soane family of companies, we recognize our place within a larger community and society. Therefore, we provide a supportive workplace and we seek a diverse work force in our recruiting efforts. Across the board, we provide an all-inclusive and professional work environment and hold ourselves to high standards in managing relationships with employees, suppliers, customers, and consumers. The company management team leads by example; fair employee compensation, transparent financial controls, and equitable shareholder rights are fundamental to our company culture.
We believe that our commitment to ESG practices will have a positive impact on society and the world. And we believe that changes are necessary. Divisiveness and inequities threaten to rupture the social network. Climate change places the entire planet in dire peril. By attending to ESG best practices, we at Soane Labs believe that we can play a part in addressing societal challenges and slowing environmental harm.
As members of a community, a civilization, and an ecosystem, we recognize that our activities can have wide-ranging effects. This underwrites our ESG commitment. At Soane Labs, we actively pursue technical, commercial, and organizational opportunities to do well by doing good, aiming to make the world a better place…one molecule at a time.
Soane Labs develops new or improved products and manufacturing processes for mature industries. Because we have a broad set of skills from our work across many industries, we are uniquely positioned to apply insights from one field to help solve problems in another. Industries we currently work in include energy, paper and pulp, biotherapeutics, mining, and agriculture.
