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, ease of formulation and compatibility with other ingredients
• Replaces a broad range of synthetic surfactants
• Commercial product now available and 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.
