The qualities of our company




Biomass fermentation has the advantages of using considerably less land, water, and energy and producing a fraction of the greenhouse gases associated with traditional animal husbandry for the equivalent amount of protein. It can take weeks and months to rear animals or grow plants using traditional methods of protein production, whereas you can potentially produce the same quantity of protein using biomass fermentation in a couple of hours.

Biomass fermentation uses the high-protein content and rapid growth of microorganisms to efficiently make large amounts of protein-rich food. Ethanol can also be obtained from biomass and through fermentation. In this case microorganisms (e.g., bacteria and yeasts) metabolize plant sugars and produce it.


Enzymes are among the most important products obtained for human needs through microbial sources. Current developments in biotechnology are yielding new applications for enzymes and fermentation holds tremendous potential for their production.

In addition to the conventional applications in food and fermentation industries enzymes have attained a significant role in biotransformations, mainly for bioactive compounds. 

Agro-industrial residues are generally considered the best substrates for the fermentation processes but other substrates can be: banana waste, tea waste, sugar cane bagasse, apple pomace, palm oil.  Proteases are one of the most important groups of industrial enzymes and account for nearly 60% of the total enzyme sale and their major use occurs in dry cleaning, detergents and meat processing.

Cell cultivation

Cell culture is used as a model system to study basic cell biology and biochemistry, to study the interaction between cell and disease causing agents like bacteria, viruses and to study the process of aging. In the last decades cultured cells are used mainly for the manufacturing of biologics such as vaccines, therapeutic proteins, antibodies and other cell therapy products. Cell cultures have a highly control of the chemical and physical environment (i.e., pH, temperature, osmotic pressure, oxygen, and carbon dioxide tension), the control of physiological conditions and it reduces costs and animal-use.


Yeast production is made possible by industrial fermentation, which must be conducted under aerobic conditions. Once the tank is filled, the yeast is collected by centrifugation. Like most other living organisms, yeast requires three conditions to grow: moisture, food and a hospitable environment. In such an environment, yeast grow rapidly by feeding on sugars.


The demand for energy has grown dramatically in recent years and alternative, sustainable solutions to meet the demand need to be found; biofuel could be the answer. Biofuel works similarly to nonrenewable fossil fuels, but the difference is that it can be grown indefinitely and generally causes less damage to the planet. The two most common types of biofuels in use today are ethanol and biodiesel, which are produced from biomass materials and through fermentation by yeast that breaks down and gets energy from glucose.

Mammarian cell colture

Mammalian cell culture has become a very important technique for the biotechnology industry that, through molecular genetic manipulation, makes it easier to grow cells in a medium free of animal proteins. Mammalian cell culture generally involves maintaining conditions that facilitate cell growth outside of animal tissue in a laboratory culture medium. An advantage of in vitro production of mammalian cells is that they can be expanded in culture to study diseases or used for the production of antibodies, proteins and vaccines.
