INDUSTRIAL BIOPROCESSES

OUR FOCUS AREAS

  • Probiotic formulations
  • Production of microorganisms using biomolecules: for example, proteins, amino acids, alcohols, antibiotics, organic acids, biosurfactants, vitamins, polysaccharides etc.
  • Enzymes and enzyme formulations
  • Active ingredients of microbial origin
  • Microbial biomass of interest (yeasts, bacteria, recombinant strains, bacterial spores, milk kefir, etc.)
  • Biopolymers and recovery of products of interest from industrial effluents through fermentation bioprocessing
  • Aroma and fragrance production by recombinant strains
  • Biofuels

CNETE CAN HELP YOU WITH

  • Diagnosing and analyzing microbial formulations and consortiums
  • Optimization of fermentation processes
  • Extraction, concentration, purification, and formulation of molecules of interest generated by the bioprocess
  • Generating substitute products in order to replace the use of chemicals
  • Effluent recovery through biological processes
