Clostridium microbial biocatalysts

The world’s most comprehensive library of high performance industrial solventogenic Clostridium biocatalysts.

Our platform is the result of over 100 years of research and development, from the development of the original ABE process in Manchester, UK in 1912 through to our advanced genetic optimisation process from 2003 onward.

We use microbial engineering and synthetic biology tools to continually expand our robust library of Clostridium microbial strains which are used as biocatalysts as part of our advanced fermentation processes.

n-Butanol and acetone are our first platform products and we are developing future C3 and C4 chemicals and derivatives using this Clostridium platform.
