Danone, DMC, Michelin and Crédit Agricole Centre France join forces to create a cutting-edge biotechnology industrial platform

The creation of the Biotech Open Platform will enable the development of advanced fermentation processes on a larger scale, and in particular precision fermentation, a revolutionary biotechnological process for the production of bio-based materials and ingredients.

This industrial and technological platform, which represents an investment of over 16 million euros in its first phase, will be located in Clermont-Ferrand at the Parc Cataroux Sustainable Materials Center, an innovation gas pedal supported by Michelin.

Precision fermentation is a cutting-edge technology that uses micro-organisms (such as bacteria, yeast or fungi) to produce proteins, enzymes and other molecules that can be used in industry. It fosters innovation, particularly in the agri-food and materials manufacturing sectors.

Florent Menegaux, President of the Michelin Group: ' The Michelin Group is delighted to announce the creation, with its partners, of Biotech Open Platform, a unique tool that will contribute to the development of biosourced materials, a central challenge for tomorrow's industry. Located in the Auvergne region of France, the Biotech Open Platform illustrates Michelin's ongoing commitment to the development of innovation and the regions in which the Group operates. '
