In the heart of the system lays an interconnected and interacting network of bioreactor arrays, where the individual reactor-cells themselves work as high-speed and high-efficiency multi-core bio-processors. The reactor-system is completed with upstream and downstream processing units to make the whole factory suitable to process wastewater and almost any kind of organic waste into products for sale.
Bioreactors in biological production systems are like microchips in a computer: you win with smaller, faster, cheaper and smarter processors.
BioMakeries are based on our unique multicore-multipurpose bio-processors, a technological breakthrough that can make closing the urban metabolic carbon-, water-, food- and energy loops a reality. These processors consist of an array of specialized bioreactors which house a series of engineered ecosystems. The bioreactors provide ideal conditions for adaptive ecologies to develop thereby optimizing their metabolic capabilities. This in turn results in much faster and more efficient biological processing than possible in conventional reactors.

Flexibility of biological manufacturing is based on a modular multi-processing platform where you can run different production applications on demand.
The engineered ecosystems in these bio-processors can be configured to metabolize various influent streams into a broad range of useful products. The significance of this configuration flexibility is that a BioMakery can address resource availability, disposal requirements and market demand issues simultaneously. In and of itself a bio-processor can handle a wide range of applications; the fact that they can be entirely reconfigured enables future transformations of the processor if required throughout the life of the BioMakery.
BIOMAKERY - A New Class of Buildings
Closing the metabolic loop is a newly emerging urban function which calls for adequate architectural forms and expressions, fusing public spaces with bio-manufacturing and water reuse.
The Biopolus technology solution offers a unique opportunity to integrate biological production, waste and wastewater recycle functions into urban environments.
BioMakeries are modern buildings with very small physical and psychological footprints but great architectural flexibility. Far from being just another type of factory these are multi-functional buildings containing opportunities for education, recreation, research and even urban farming.
