Biopetrolia AB focusses on the sustainable production of fatty-acid derived products for chemicals, food ingredients, personal care products and pharmaceuticals.

Biopetrolia AB will be responsible for metabolic engineering of the different chassis strains towards the production of specific target products. Their major contributions to the project are… More...
expressing and screening of heterologous enzymes while increasing precursor supply to improve production (WP5)
increasing tolerance towards target products and further increasing production capacities (WP4)
developing proof-of-principle cell factory strains for production of target products
optimizing titer, rate, and yield of target products
pilot-scale production through partnerships with contract manufactures delivering product for validation studies with customers
