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 developed a game changing technology platform for the cost-efficient and ecological production of a range of biosurfactants from first and second generation feedstocks. Our platform is based on technology that has been developed and scaled-up in over 15 years by Ghent University (InBio research group) and the Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant. Our first products-to-market are fully waste-based drop-in sophorolipid biosurfactants.
AmphiStar develops, scales up and produces biosurfactants at industrial scale. We bring together the required technologies, know-how and IP to convert biomass (waste) streams into purified biosurfactant products ready-to use by our customers. 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.
