Akermin is an advanced biocatalyst materials company with proprietary polymer encapsulation technology that enables stabilized enzymes to replace conventional metal catalysts in fuel cells and a wide range of other chemical processes. This breakthrough technology offers increased performance at lower costs by employing renewable resources with environmentally friendly disposal. The company is now advancing biofuel cell prototypes, exploring opportunities in biocatalysis, and evaluating product development partnerships with downstream companies that can use this technology across a range of applications.
Based in St. Louis, MO., Akermin has the exclusive worldwide license to the stabilized enzyme catalyst technology invented at Saint Louis University (SLU) by the Company's founders, Nick Akers and Shelley Minteer, Ph.D. The company received seed funding in March 2004, demonstrated proof of concept, and completed initial Series A funding through venture capital and private investors in October 2005. After building its internal R&D team, achieving all Phase I technical milestones, defining market targets and establishing early industry relationships, the company completed a Phase II Series A round in March 2007.
