Cellulosic Sugars: Paving the way for Production of ‘Economically Viable’ next-generation Biomaterials

Biomass-derived cellulosic sugars hold immense potential to address the challenge of finding low-cost carbon sources for producing alternative proteins and biomaterials through precision fermentation.

This advancement paves the way for the creation of ‘economically viable’ next-generation alternative and sustainable synthetic biomaterials. As the industry progresses towards scaling low-value, high-volume synbio products, the primary obstacle it faces in achieving price parity is the cost of carbon.


In contrast to conventional sugars like dextrose, glucose, and glycerol, commonly used in precision fermentation, biomass-derived cellulosic sugars offer a more economically efficient and environmentally friendly alternative. By incorporating cellulosic sugars into the fermentation process, we can significantly reduce the production cost of sustainable bioproducts, making them accessible to a wide range of applications.

Our approach at Fermbox Bio is deeply rooted in sustainability and resource optimization. We are developing Synbio products using a proprietary fungal expression platform, which has the potential to produce higher titers compared to other microbial expression systems and is equipped to utilise cellulosic sugars as a carbon source.

At Fermbox Bio, collaboration stands at the heart of our mission. Our advanced fungal expression system presents exciting partnership opportunities, and if you share our vision and are interested in exploring the potential of this platform, do reach out to us at info@fermbox.bio.
