IMEnz Bioengineering is a biotech company that carries out applied research of Industrial Microorganisms and Enzymes. IMEnz develops processes to improve the sustainable production of biobased chemicals from renewable raw materials. These organic sources can be the widespread byproducts from the agri-related industry, including food and feed producers, and the paper industry.

IMEnz bridges the gap between scientific knowledge and industrial applications to accelerate the innovations of their customers. Examples of products and processes that they have co-developed are: various high quality nutrients for fermentation; an economical process for the chiral bioproduction of either D- or L-lactic acid; the engineering of (proteolytic) enzymes to degrade biomaterials under extreme conditions; libraries of microorganisms; enzyme libraries; a screening system for the discovery of new antimicrobial agents; and the development and production of binding proteins, e.g. for biosensors, to name a few. IMEnz innovations contribute to the development of a sustainable economy while at the same time cost savings and a better climate are achieved.
