Bioextrax has developed a biobased platform technology to selectively hydrolyze a number of protein rich materials. It is a green technology that can contribute to a circular economy and a more sustainable society.
The research that the Bioextrax business concept is built upon was carried out at the Department of Biotechnology at Lund University. During this period, a cell-lysing bacteria was identified which, when brought in contact with the PHA producing microbial cells without the presence of any other reagents or solvents, could very quickly and completely lyse the cells, leaving only very pure original PHA granules and an amino-acid/protein co-product. It was very quickly concluded that this lysing bacteria had the potential to not only lyse PHA producing microbial cells, but could also be used with oils, chemicals and nutritional supplements.
You can explore some of the key applications on this site – but we are also very open to collaborations to explore new ways of turning waste into value.
