Our Origin

The origin of Abolis’ lays in two observations :

Natural resources are continuously dwindling and we need to quickly find new sources of renewable carbons to support human progress.

Today’s chemistry is mostly non sustainable, and needs to adapt to the 21st century challenges.

Abolis Biotechnologies “Metabolism Architects” is an AGILE European biotech SME that wishes to participate in the ecological transition of chemical industry by helping them developing bioprocesses for the production of their molecules of interest.
