Earlier this year, Teegene Biotech’s method of processing biosurfactants led to the company reaching the finals of the KTN organised Industrial Biotechnology Leadership Forum (IBLF) awards.
TeeGene Biotech has since been shortlisted in the IChemE Global Awards 2015, under the 'Best Business Start-Up' category, which celebrate excellence, innovation and achievement in the chemical, process and biochemical industries.
TeeGene Biotech have come up with a way to create biosurfactants from strains of bacteria that act like soap and help to emulsify a variety of liquids.
These can be manufactured in a lab and are said to be fully biodegradable, with minimal impact on the environment.
They also have anti-microbial and anti-ageing properties, making them suitable for cosmetic products and biotherapeutics. To read more please click here.
