BioscienZ has been established in 2011 by Wim de Laat. Based on his broad biotech experience BioscienZ has developed various innovative, low costs fungal fermentation processes.
The most well-known example is The Protein Brewery, that was established end of 2019 as a spin-out of BioscienZ. The focus of The Protein Brewery is on the use of fungi for Food products.
BioscienZ is currently exploring the conversion of various agrifood by- products to feed products together with a well-known feed company. In 2021 also a collaboration was started with B4Plastics and Millvision on biomaterials, e.g. leather alternatives made from fungal mycelium. For this work European support from Interreg Vlaanderen-Nederland has been received.
B4Plastics is the Belgian scale-up that recently received the world’s biggest environmental award from the Food Planet Prize Foundation for its innovative work on world-changing ecological materials.
BioscienZ also sees possibilities to address the nitrogen emission caused by lifestock farming (one of the major challenges of the Netherlands; see article of the Volkskrant) , and targets to valorize manure to e.g. feed and biomaterials. Within the GPEC – Green Protein Excellence Center, BioscienZ will explore possibilities, also in collaboration with e.g. farmers, to convert manure to e.g. feed.READ ALL THE NEWS
