About us

The natural alternative

We are driven by the prospect, that biology can replace chemistry and enable a more sustainable world for generations to come. Using nature’s own principle, our mission is to enable a future where vitamins and other ingredients are manufactured biologically with a substantially lower environmental footprint than what is the case by today’s traditional chemical methods of manufacturing. By developing and applying proprietary biological processes we will offer customers and consumers a more natural and sustainable alternative to present-day vitamins, at a price competitive level

An ambition to change the future

Until now, we have raised EUR 10 million of which EUR 4 million are from national and EU grants. Our investors' great support and funding means that today we are the leading developer of natural vitamin bioprocesses.   Our ambition is to replace highly polluting chemical processes and challenge the status quo with significantly more sustainable fermentation processes.

Our ambition is to deliver vitamins are produced from renewable sugar using a proprietary biological fermentation process
- making it possible to produce various vitamins and nutraceuticals, to go into not only personal care and food, but also feed products.

Biosyntia was founded in 2012 by Morten Sommer, Hans Jasper Genee and Andreas Hougaard Laustsen as a spin-out from Centre for Biosustainability, at the Technical University of Denmark.
Today we are 20 passionate people with capabilities spanning from strain engineering, fermentation optimization, bioprocess development, and business development.

A different approach based on cutting-edge biology

Our solution is based on biology rather than chemistry.

Compared to chemistry, our proprietary fermentation processes have the potential to significantly lower CO2 emissions and chemical waste while producing products in a safer way. The outcome of our bioprocesses are products that are more natural and sustainable, and eventually more price-competitive than their chemical counterparts.

However, engineering biology is a complex endeavor. What makes Biosyntia unique, is that we have succeeded with the development bio-based processes where others have failed.

What we do differently is, that we program biology using cutting edge technology to provide a solution the world has never seen before.
