GROUP LEADER IN PRECISION FERMENTATION AND METABOLISM ANALYSIS
Global Bioenergies has developed a process to convert plant-derived resources into a family of compounds used in the cosmetics industry as well as the energy and materials sectors. In 2021, the Group entered the market with the launch of LAST®, its own make-up brand with formulas based on a key ingredient produced via its technology. The Company is constantly seeking to enhance the performance of its process while gradually ramping up production capacities in order to supply ingredients to major cosmetics manufacturers, thereby promoting naturalness in the industry whilst improving its carbon footprint. Some of these compounds can also be used to produce renewable plastics, rubbers and paints.
Lastly, Global Bioenergies is also aiming to reduce CO2 emissions in the aviation sector and thereby curb global warming. Global Bioenergies is listed on Euronext Growth Paris.
The company is recruiting a Group leader in precision fermentation and metabolism analysis.
