About Us

Our Mission Is To Improve Billions Of Lives Through Sustainable Bioinnovation

Founded as Cellulosic Technologies (now BIOWEG) in 2019 in Germany, we are a purpose-driven organization powered by conscious ChemDesign. We match Bioinnovation to business problems. We explore and combine biotechnology, material science and molecular simulations learning to create and sell advanced sustainable and bio-based high-performance ingredients.

Our ingredients are 100% animal- and GMO-free, globally scalable, and sustainably produced without using any harsh chemicals. We work with results-oriented, forward-thinking companies and consumer brands with global scale in the beauty, nutraceuticals, and food/beverage sectors who desire highly-differentiated, 100% animal-free and sustainable, science-based ingredient technologies.
