Chiral chemistry & biotechnology
Biocatalysis and fermentation services.
Full service offering for enzymes, fermentation, strain development.
Evonik is a leading player in the field of chiral chemistry. We are proud to provide a full service offering for enzymes, fermentation and strain development, and offer a strong platform for chiral products, including chemo- and biocatalysis.
We can assist with carbohydrate chemistry and purification tasks, and leverage a broad range of technologies for nucleoside APIs. Moreover, we deliver a range of amino acids and derivatives – including natural and non-natural amino acids, and di- and tripeptides.
We are also experts in enzymes. We have used more than 20 different types of enzymes in production, and up to very large volumes. Specifically, we possess an in-house enzyme library, and specialize in isolated enzymes and whole cell processes.
In addition, we are a global leader in fermentation. We have a total fermentation reactor volume approaching 4,000 m³, and can support all fermentation applications – from strain development to commercial manufacturing.
