The biodiversity of our oceans is one of the main sources of biotechnologically-relevant micro-organisms and enzymes that allow for the development of more sustainable production processes for high value-added compounds.

We search for ocean recovery solutions and food production innovations

We explore genetic diversity and isolate micro-organisms in new environments with the purpose of identifying microbial metabolic pathways that participate in the production of interesting compounds (Omega-3), biotransformation processes, and the colonisation of submerged surfaces (biofouling).

We innovate by producing healthier, heartier, and safer foods, while developing more sustainable and less polluting industrial processes.
