Revolutionising the oil industry through cutting-edge bioengineering.

We harness the natural microbial power of yeasts and hydrogen-oxidising bacteria, combined with German bioprocess engineering, to create highly efficient production processes. We use renewable carbon from emissions containing biogenic carbon dioxide and industrial organic byproducts.

Ready for industrial scaling

Yeast precision fermentation oil



  • Our expertise in a wide range of yeast strains enables us to produce oils with customised fatty acid profiles from a variety of organic byproducts.
  • The presence of valuable pigments and antioxidant carotenoids gives these oils vibrant reds, oranges and yellow hues.
  • Depending on the application, we employ solvent-free or traditional downstream oil recovery processes.
  • Our core competencies include process modelling and techno-economic analysis.

Our revolutionary process in the making

Bacterial gas fermentation oil



  • We use knallgas bacteria to convert CO2 captured from point sources into biomaterials.
  • Our patented tailor-made gas fermentation bioreactor unleashes a specially selected strain of bacteria.
  • Our power-to-liquid technology is designed to outperform carbon conversion processes using plants, algae and microbial strains such as archaea and acetobacter.
  • The improved performance will reduce production costs and encourage the development of economically viable and climate-neutral biomaterials.

Oil applications


Do you apply genetically modified organisms (GMOs)?

The conversion of organic byproducts into oils is facilitated by naturally occurring non-GMO yeasts found in nature. Our non-GMO bacteria convert carbon dioxide into biomass, which can be used as animal feed. It takes genetic engineering to make the bacteria produce oils.

Yes, we provide oil and biomass samples in sufficient quantities for prototyping purposes. Please contact us for a commercial quotation.

Yes. We have successfully completed research projects ranging from several weeks to several months. Our partners provided us with samples of renewable carbon which we tested using our proven fermentation methodology. Our partners were satisfied with the oil samples we provided, as well as the technological reports that included techno-economic analyses and scaling plans.

Yes, our products will go through the European Novel Food Process once we decide to enter the food market.

Yes, our technology is scalable. Our gas fermentation uses CO2 as a carbon source, which is abundantly available. Our rapid fermentation systems allow for comparatively small bioreactors, reducing the capital investment required and thus minimising the entry barrier.

The production of alternatives to palm kernel oil and coconut fat would involve the synthesis of triacylglycerols with a high content of lauric acid (C12:0). Lauric acid is known to have antimicrobial effects, which naturally limits harmful concentrations by microorganisms during production. Creating an economically viable microbial production system for it will require considerable effort.

The taste, odour and colour of our oils can be tailored to individual requirements. By carefully selecting microbial strains, tailoring the fermentation process and downstream processing, we can produce oils with a range of characteristics, including colourful antioxidant varieties as well as colourless, odourless and neutral tasting oils. The refining process is similar to that of vegetable oils.

Let's explore mutual opportunities

We are looking for first-mover companies that are passionate about sustainability and want to make a positive change by adopting our Climate Oils as well as investors and potential partners to supply us with CO2 or organic byproducts for value creation. Get in contact with us and let’s work together.
