Biomass booster

Biomass Booster (BMB) is a genomics functional company, dedicated to the optimization of productivity in generating biomass, by creating high performance genetically optimized species.

BMB goal is to become a trusted partner for the production of high performance strains for energy crops, both microalgae and vascular plants, based on a versatile and powerful technology platform, relatively short periods of development, co-participation of the generated industrial property, and a system of flexible trade agreements.

Biomass Booster has developed its own technology platform, based on patented gene BMB-707, that can increase biomass output ranging between 23% and 60% depending on the tested species.

Biomass Booster is currently developing new lines of research using molecular biology techniques that reveal the enormous importance of the microbiota associated with any living being. RIZOBIOMA PROJECT.
