At Fornia BioSolutions, innovation and continuous improvement are integral to everything we do. Founded in 2015, we are incredibly proud that our enzyme directed evolution research has already made a significant contribution to the food processing and feed industries. In the future, we will extend our microbial research to the agricultural, aquacultural, household/personal care, and environmental industries.
Our current patents include the following:
Glucoamylase granted patents US9598680, US9670472, US10035997, US10053678, US10227578, US10927357, CN109312320, EP3298136 (also granted in GB/FR/DE), EP3272767 (also granted in GB/FR/DE); patent applications US20200199560A1, EP3688151A1 and CN111757931A: Our research helps maximize the performance of industrial scale saccharification enzymes. Saccharification enzymes are used on liquefied starch-containing substrates to produce sugars for fermentation. Our research improves glucoamylase enzyme activity, thermoactivity, thermostability and pH stability, resulting in enhanced starch conversion for many fermentation processes.
Phytase granted patents US9605245, US9528096, US10351832, US10995325, EP3263698 (also granted in GB/FR/DE/ES/RO), EP3263699 (also granted in GB/FR/DE/ES/RO), CN108603181; patent applications EP3737751A1, CN111718918A, US17/668360 and CN202210128563.3: Our research developed a novel thermostable enzyme for animal feed. The pelleting process can deplete animal feed of many of its nutrients. Our enzyme enables the manufacture of animal feed that is richer in nutrients, resulting in animals that gain weight more quickly, with less feed.
Lactonase granted patents US10081800, EP3484293 (also granted in GB/FR/DE) and CN110191641: Our research developed a novel enzyme with broad pH and temperature profile that can be used as an “antimicrobial agent” to shut down the expression of pathogenic genes. In agriculture field, our enzyme can be used to combat bacterial plant pathogens as an alternative to pesticides. In aquaculture field, our enzyme can be used in formulated feed to prevent bacterial infections in fishes.
Alkaline protease granted patent US10787656: Our research developed a novel alkaline protease for detergent.
High temperature amylase granted patent US10808234: Our research developed a novel alkaline protease for starch liquefaction.
Neutral and alkaline endoglucanase granted patent US10927358; patent applications CN111699252A, US17/556504, EP21216582.3, CN202111584257.2: Our research developed a novel endoglucanase for textile bio-stoning and detergent.
Acid xylanase patent applications US17/552423, EP21215280.5, CN202111549255.X: Our research developed a novel acid xylanase for animal feed.
