We utilize cutting edge synthetic biology to produce high value low volume chemicals
Creatus Biosciences Inc. is a synthetic biology company developing next generation biorefinery platforms for commercial biobased processes. Next generation biorefinery platforms will have the ability to use mixed glucose and xylose sugars derived from biomass, shifting reliance from food-based biomass to waste and renewable sources.
Creatus' platform, the ‘H0’ yeast, has the ability to utilize xylose (C5) sugars found abundantly in biomass to produce high value specialty chemicals. The platform acts as a biological chassis, allowing engineering of its components to generate multiple product lines, while also providing transferrable tools to enable first generation conventional biorefineries to become next generation. The ‘H0’ Platform is well suited to the production of high value compounds in the fragrance, food and cosmetics industries.
