INNOVATION

Leaders in Biosurfactant Technology

We leverage our expertise in biochemistry and fermentation to deliver novel technology and a three-step product development process that results in economically competitive biosurfactants with best-in-class performance and purity.

1
• Enables use of proven microbes previously not economically viable
• Isolates metabolites and maximizes their full genetic expression
• Accelerates commercial deployment
2
• Delivers GMO-free metabolites as cost-effective solutions to directly address industry pain points
• Enables lower usage rates and replaces multiple ingredients
• Modular fermentation platform provides the potential for forward deployment
3
• Ensures consistent purity, easy of formulation and compatility with other ingredients
• Replaces a broad range of synthetic surfactants
• Commercial product now available
• Samples ready upon request

The Next Generation of Biosurfactants

Using our technology, we can discover, develop, scale and rapidly
commercialize targeted metabolites that have unmatched benefits.
