At Holiferm, we have developed a technology to reduce lipid production costs by 50%, recovering the product as it is produced. We have applied this technique to biosurfactants, enabling us to more than double titer and productivity to >800 g/l and >5 g/l/h respectively, and demonstrated we can apply our technique using waste feedstocks, such as waste cooking oil. We have scaled up production to pilot plant scale with 2 industrial collaborators, and are offering licences for our first technology. In parallel we are developing a platform for a number of biosurfactants in collaboration with a number of major chemical companies, and expanding this platform to include other insoluble lipids. I will be presenting the results of our technology development and application.
