The research that the Bioextrax business concept is built upon was carried out between 2012-2014 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.
Our company was thus founded in late 2014 and has since developed this unique and patented bio-based extraction platform technology.We are currently in the process of commercializing our PHA extraction technology and our patent-pending technology for turning feathers into feed. In the lab, our researchers are exploring novelle applications for our extraction platform. We are always open for new ideas and collaborations, so don't hesitate to get in touch!
We are proud recipients of support from Nordic Innovation, NordForsk and Nordic Energy Research as part of the Nordic Green Growth Research and Innovation Programme.
