CRITT Bio-Industries is a Technology Transfer Center specialized in Industrial Biotechnology. Thanks to the implementation of microorganisms, enzymes and our expertise in bioseparation, we help companies to renovate or develop innovative processes and products in fields as varied as Agro-industry, Agri-food, Health, Cosmetology, Chemistry, Environment ...
We intervene from proof of concept to pre-industrial scale-up, through the production of demonstration lots.
We propose to implement our biological tools for the valorization of multiple biomasses: vegetable, animal and various organic co-products.

Our technological hall enables the implementation of projects from the proof of concept, to the production of batches (300 L.) through the optimization of processes.
Our purpose is to make available to companies and public structures our know-how and technology platforms to develop biotechnological processes. For this purpose we propose projects in direct contracting with, research agreements or services. We are also eligible for any form of subsidy and financing for collaborative projects whether regional, national or European) and the Research Tax Credit (CIR) for a base corresponding to double the amount invoiced.
Our technological hall enables the implementation of projects from the proof of concept, to the production of 300 litres batches through the optimization of processes.
