|BioMimetx is a newborn global biotech start-up focused on the development of "green" antifouling solutions, to prevent marine biofouling, the natural mechanism of adhesion of marine organisms to submerged structures.
BioMimetx discovered and owns environmental bacteria that secrete high levels of molecules, which can be used as natural antimicrobials and algaecides. Currently these molecules are being produced through an optimized lab-scale fermentation process, ensuring high yield through a simple single step procedure. As the first product, BioMimetx is developing an antifouling additive to be incorporated in marine paints.
Nonetheless, these compounds, produced by BioMimetx, can be used in the development of a wide range of products with applications in the most diverse industrial sectors such as Industrial biotech, Agriculture or Health. BioMimetx developing pipeline will be structured to sequentially introduce products that capture the highest value in those markets.
