With the strategy "from the cell to the end product", the CWBI brings solutions to the Industy for problems encountered in the development of new products. 

A CWBI team is specialized in assisting SMEs in various applications of microbiology, fermentation and organic products valorization


• routine analyses (microbial counts, waste and water analyses, DCO, DBO, etc.), 

• production of microorganisms at the lab or industrial scale, 

• selection of microorganisms, 

• packaging study for sensitive products

• finalization and valorization of products or manufacturing processes

Isolation of microbial starters allowing an enhancement of biogaz (methane and hydrogen) productivity
