High-performance Microorganisms

We identify and develop high-performance microorganisms as functional biomass for optimized industrial production processes.

They serve as so-called biosubstitutes to establish bioprocesses in chemical processes or to produce bioactive natural compounds and enzymes for specialty markets. Application areas also include the recycling of the greenhouse gas CO2 as an industrial raw material, as well as urban and green mining for the extraction of precious and rare earth metals from waste streams and ores.
