(BRUSSELS)

The influential Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre (IBioIC) has welcomed its 100th member.

Headquartered in Scotland, IBioIC has become a vehicle for international partnerships; with almost half its member base in Scotland and the rest from Europe, the US and the rest of the world. 

And it recently welcomed Oxford Biotrans as its 100th member. A University of Oxford spin-out company, it is supported by over 20 years of research by Dr Luet Lok Wong from the Department of Chemistry. Founded in 2013, the company is working to develop and commercialise enzymatic process technology to yield high-value chemicals from natural feedstocks. Their processes are environmentally friendly – producing less chemical waste and using less energy than traditional methods.
