In Canada and the USA, Evonik has been developing and producing lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) for years. LNPs are absolutely essential for the effectiveness of mRNA-based vaccines: These ultrafine particles made of fats and waxes envelop the mRNA and transport it into human cells. Without the protective sheath of LNPs, the mRNA would disintegrate inside the body within seconds.
