Sector: Technology Providers & Pilot Plants


Biosphere is an ltalian SME operating in the field of industrial biotechnology, with a focus on the development and scale-up of fermentation processes for the production of different molecules. 

Fermentation, bioprocesses and extraction of molecules from natural sources are gradually replacing chemical processes based on fossil fuels, as bioprocesses are more efficient than traditional chemical synthesis, in terms of selectivity, energy use and environmental sustainability. Biosphere's mission is to develop know how and expertise in the fields of fermentation and bioprocesses in order to be a preferred biotech partner, delivering customized contract R&D and contract manufacturing services, providing tailor-made and cost-effective solutions for a wide range of industrial applications. 

Biosphere offers R&D services for the development and scale-up of biotechnological processes, from laboratory to pilot and pre-industrial scale, for recombinant protein and metabolites expression in bacteria, yeasts and fungi. The service includes fermentation and downstream process development and optimization, to increase production yields and reduce production casts and environmental impact. 

Biosphere collaborates with companies, universities, research institutes and scientific networks in several research projects, with private or public funding.
