Biotechnology differs from classical chemistry. Whereas chemistry normally uses elevated temperatures and pressures to drive the reactions, Biotechnology uses mild conditions close to room temperature carrying out reactions in water with the help of microorganisms and enzymes.

With the help of Biotechnology we offer tailor made solutions using designed microorganisms and optimized enzymes out of one hand according to our customers’ needs:

  • Substitution of fossil based chemicals by bio-based analogues
  • Development of new bio-based products with improved properties
  • Efficient production processes using biotechnological routes and production steps
  • Sustainable conversion of biobased feedstock, e.g., for the production of cellulosic ethanol from agricultural residues with our sunliquid technology, offering highest greenhouse gas savings without competing with food and feed production
