Companies looking for unique biochemical conversions in technical and sustainable applications, come to us to scale-up their proprietary enzymes.
One of the key global trends of the twenty-first century is the drive for sustainability and reduced manufacturing impact on the environment. The need to reduce the environmental damage and diminish climate change from chemical processing lends itself to the requirement for greener, more efficient processes.
The development of a bio-based economy aims to establish renewable biological sources and the efficient biotechnology processes to convert these by-product and side streams to value-added bio-based products and services.
Biocatalysis can be the ideal solution for achieving this. Enzymes can be used for biochemical conversions in a broad range of technical and sustainable applications. Many bioproducts utilise the distinctly targeted specificity of enzymes to perform a highly controlled biochemical conversion such as the breaking down of biomass to make available the carbohydrates for further processing into biofuels. Enzymes offer an efficient, cost effective and sustainable solution for the manufacture of many bioproducts.
Biocatalysts helps many clients at various stages of enzyme discovery, product-development, scale-up, and supply, for applications in a wide range of industrial biotech processes, such as novel carbohydrate- and lipid modifications. We have built a standalone business model specifically to support this approach, leveraging our short response times, our history in commercialising novel enzymes, and our lab-to-plant manufacturing scales. This minimises risk when commercialising enzymes for industrial biotech applications, and ensures we can support existing R&D and campaign projects seamlessly.
Biocatalysts Ltd are proud partners in EU-funded OXIPRO project aimed at exploring novel oxidoreductases for use in manufacturing environmentally-friendly consumer products. Utilising the latest developments in biotechnology the OXIPRO consortium will achieve new sustainable, efficient and greener production processes for consumer goods. Contributions of this project will boost the competitiveness and sustainability of the European bio-based economy.
