Bioproduction, a combination of traditional engineering and applied biology, allows to obtain high added value substances with high biological activity by means of the exploitation of live microorganisms.

The main applications of AINIA’s bioproduction  plant are:
• Microorganisms, industrial starters and probiotics production. Identification of low-cost culture mediums and the most appropiated culture conditions.
• High added value compounds production from selected microorganisms.
• Biotransformation by means of selected microorganisms (prior validation of its technological ability).

Advanced fermentative processes are applied on:
• Food, functional food, …
• Cosmetics, identification of high added value compounds, …
• Pharmacy, selection of microorganisms for the industrial procurement of active principles with functional activity, …
• Biomedicine, production of active molecules to develop treatments against sicknesses, …
• Packaging, bioplastics production from useable effluents with sustainable organic compounds, …
