Our future is Triple-BIO.
Local, sustainable, renewable feedstocks and waste streams. No palm oil!
Clean and safe production technology for people and the environment
Biodegradable, ecological, sulfate-free, mild, non-toxic and non-irritant
At AmphiStar we are developing a game changing technology platform for the cost-efficient and ecological production of biosurfactants. Our platform is initially based on the glycolipid technology platform with the yeast Starmerella bombicola, that has been developed and scaled-up in over 10 years by Ghent University (InBio research group) and the Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant.
AmphiStar has the mission to develop, scale up and demonstrate biosurfactant technology at industrially relevant level. To achieve this, we bring together the required technologies, know-how and IP into a platform technology for biosurfactants with freedom to operate. As such, we aid in the transition from a fossil-based to a more environment friendly, bio-based industry. Our technology is fully in line with the vision of a circular economy, allowing a high standard of living while using chemicals and materials produced by sustainable production systems out of renewable (biomass) raw materials.
We derisk the early development stage for biosurfactant production, guide and support technology transfer to industrial production sites and collaborate intensely for further development and improvement of the licensed technology.
