For better food & nutrition
In Life Sciences, our competences in this area add up to valuable enzymes, cultures, flavors, vitamins and poly-unsaturated Omega 3 fatty acids for food and nutrition applications. For example, we can reduce salt in food ingredients.
Enabling sustainable fuels
Biological Sciences have given us the capabilities for large-scale refining of biomass - and the resultant development of sustainable bioprocesses and biofuels from agricultural residue - as seen in the POET-DSM Project LIBERTY initiative – decreasing our dependency on fossil fuels.
Developing advanced materials
On the Materials Sciences side of our business, we use our microbial and enzyme engineering capabilities. For example, we have created green chemical building blocks like bio-succinic acid, which is the first non-fossil feedstock that allows the chemical industry a bio-based alternative with a lower eco-footprint for a broad range of applications, and developed biomedical applications like our Bionate® II PCU, now being used to support people with spinal and disc problems.
