The link between laboratory and industry

The link between laboratory and industry

Bio-based plastics are extremely robust, frequently breathable, have a lower environmental impact than conventional plastics, and reduce dependency on fossil energies.

Our multi-purpose fermentation plant in Leuna serves as a link between laboratory and industry. Many biotechnology processes are being developed by start-ups, universities, or in the labs of small- and medium-sized enterprises. But the results cannot be transferred to industrial scale without an intermediate stage – and that requirement can now be met by the multi-purpose fermentation plant.

Successes:

  • Robust and breathable
  • Biodegradable
  • Lower environmental impact than conventional plastics
