BIOPOLIS, S.L. - Agri-food biotechnology
Agri-food biotechnology

BIOPOLIS, S.L. isolates and selects microorganisms, as well as performing the relevant functional and technological validation tests. We also develop and validate functional ingredients for the food industry.

Industrial waste management can be very costly for a business. Waste also constitutes an important environmental problem due to both its volume and physical-chemical characteristics. BIOPOLIS, S.L. wants to do away with the negative connotations associated with the word “waste”. We believe in its recovery and reuse for other purposes providing added value and a number of advantages:

  • Improved performance of the production process with less waste of raw materials.
  • Use of waste as a component of other production processes of functional foods or food matrices.
  • Added value of the production chain.
  • Investment in cleaner technology.

Our goal is to obtain products of high added value. BIOPOLIS, S.L. selects the most appropriate treatments and technologies from the environmentally-friendly and cost-effective standpoints. In pursuit of waste recovery as a better alternative to waste disposal, we take a multi-disciplinary approach, with the following units working together: biochemistry, microbiology, molecular biology, cellular biology, genomics, and employ bench-top and industrial fermentation.

Líneas de trabajo:

  • Physical and biochemical characterization of waste and industrial by-products.
  • Recovery of organic waste and extracts.
  • Analytical studies of waste recycling.
  • Functional characterization.
  • Extraction and purification of high added-value components.
  • Enzymatic treatment.
  • Fermentation and digestion by microorganisms.
