Sustainable processes for a circular economy

The scientists at BRAIN’s Environmental division develop new products and customized solutions making processes more sustainable and companies fit for a circular economy.

We provide high-performance microorganisms, enzymes and bio-based process solutions, providing support to our customers when it comes to:

  • innovating in order to improve production time efficiency;
  • reducing their CO2 emissions and energy consumption;
  • transforming waste-streams into products for unprecedented value chains.

We deliver disruptive innovations from sample identification to supply, thus facilitating new value creation based on sustainable high-tech approaches.
