Industrial Biotechnology

At Maucher Jenkins, we understand the importance of industrial biotechnology and have experience of working with companies in this sector.

Industrial biotechnology involves the application of biotechnology to industrial processes using micro-organisms and enzymes for the sustainable production of biobased products.  Some examples of biobased products that can be produced using industrial biotechnology are alcohols, fuels, healthcare products, fabrics, plastics, chemicals, detergents, paper, textiles and bioenergy. 

 

With the increasing realisation that the resources of our world are limited, industrial biotechnology is an area that is rapidly developing and more and more industries are looking to develop biobased routes to manufacturing.  Industrial biotechnology has broad application and can be used in many areas, such as creating new plant-based biodegradable products; reducing the environmental impact of manufacturing; using the byproducts of existing manufacturing processes to product new products; and processing biomass in biorefineries to produce transport fuels, electricity, plastics or chemicals. 

 

At Maucher Jenkins, we understand the importance of industrial biotechnology and have experience of working with companies in this sector.
