Pursuing Greener Chemistry

Pursuing the potential of electrochemistry

Our electrochemical processes enable oxidation and reduction reactions without using chemical reagents. Our long experience of electrochemistry on production scale allows us to run cleaner, higher yielding and more selective reactions. The method allows to obtain higher purity material than with classical methods while addressing the reduction of chemical waste for better sustainability and more eco-friendly chemical processes.

Biocatalysis using enzymes

We address challenging chemical selectivity issues with the use of enzymes. With our broad experience and a network of specialist partners, we can genetically design the required enzymes for better performance, selectivity, and efficiency. In particular, stereo-selective chemical transformations can run in an eco-friendly environment. Our modern facilities are fully equipped to support the scale-up and stable operation of sustainable enzymatic reactions. The process reduces the risk of chemical hazards and cuts back on waste and the use of solvents while increasing chemical purity and decreasing side reactions.

Chemical vs. Chemo-enzymatic route

Chemical processes in aqueous media

Our large volume processes are partially water-based. The process minimizes the use of organic solvents, reducing waste and ensuring the safety of employees and the environment.

We work closely with an international network of industrial and academic partners in the fields of analytical science, enzyme design and preparation, and enzymatically catalyzed reactions, as well as electrochemical solutions.
