New Hub for Precision Fermentation Technology

Author: ChemistryViews

Danone, Michelin, the start-up DMC Biotechnologies, and the Crédit Agricole Centre France have launched the Biotech Open Platform to advance precision fermentation technology. The latform is located in Clermont-Ferrand at the Parc Cataroux Sustainable Materials Center in France, an innovation incubator supported by Michelin. With an initial investment of more than 16 million euros, the platform will scale up the production of bio-based materials and ingredients with the support of several public and private entities.

The platform aims to fast-track the development of precision fermentation by scaling up lab-tested innovative products and processes. By 2025, it will install a demonstration production line with a fermenter and purification unit, with a second line to follow in subsequent years. This will allow the platform to meet the needs of its founders and eventually support other companies in scaling up industrial bioproduction.

Precision fermentation is a cutting-edge technology that uses microorganisms such as bacteria, yeast, or fungi to produce proteins, enzymes, and other molecules for industrial use. It is seen as particularly suited to innovations in the agricultural, food, and materials industries.
