What we do
Our core business is the R&D of technologies and processes for the production of fine and bulk chemicals by bio fermentation as well as the production and marketing of these products and their derivatives.
Our ability in using the DNA recombinant technique makes it possible for us to engineer selected microorganisms aiming to obtain a large number of molecules and materials that can be used in many different applications.
Galatea Bio Tech is specialized in the production of bio plastics, enzymes, bi-functional molecules, organic acids and microbial strains suitable for the production of many different bio molecules. Our strength is the University Knowledge in biotechnology and materials science we can provide. This, combined with our great flexibility, gives us the opportunity to fulfill any customer request, even on demand.
The technological processes developed by Galatea Bio Tech build molecules with a low carbon footprint, which is typical of products of plant origin and which contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, achieving thus Kyoto’s Protocol targets. Galatea Bio Tech is a global market player to be included in the roll-call of green chemistry leading companies and a wider follower of sustainable development parameters.
