iMEAN integrates TWB 🤝
TWB (Toulouse White Biotechnology) is a pre-industrial demonstrator in the field of industrial biotechnology, also known as white biotechnology. TWB mission is to help develop the bioeconomy based on the use of renewable carbon.
TWB is structured around a Joint Service Unit (UMS) under the triple tutelage of INRAE, INSA and CNRS (INRAE UMS 1337, CNRS UMS 3582) with 3 main objectives :
- Respond to climate challenges and issues;
- Facilitate synergies between public research and industry in the field of industrial biotechnology;
- Create economic value.
How? By encouraging the development of new methods of sustainable production through the use of innovative biological tools (enzymes, microorganisms) and competitive processes.
