Our expertise is based on developing solutions to multiple industries and providing fast prototyping and full fit for customers’ production lines.

Nature inspires our innovation — how it all started?

A group of enthusiastic scientists and founders was innovating in a frozen Lappish van with a shared world saving mission. We wanted to prevent global warming, reduce pollution by removing harmful substances and recycling waste from industries and preserve the planet for our children. We wanted to create truly disruptive technological innovations in the merge of materials science, green chemistry, synthetic biology, sustainability and recycling.

Expanding our horizon towards side-stream valorisation

The upraise to the next level was a proposal from a co-operation partner who understood our mission and potential. This led into a serious initiative, us coordinating a groundbreaking synbio facility challenge, a project where genetically modified yeasts and bacteria were used to transform agricultural side-streams into biobased materials.
Our proprietary side-streams based BrightBio platform was launched in 2018 with a governmental grant from Business Finland to support the scaling of Brightplus business. Brightplus will continue to develop its BrightBio platform further into global environment and to respond the growing need of circular economy solutions.
