Next-gen Catalysts

Catavis develops the next generation biocatalysts for sustainable and future-oriented chemistry. Through our novel CataGel technology, we are able to produce tailor-made catalytically active biomaterials characterized by their outstanding stability and activity. Our technology thus enables cost-effective and at the same time environmentally friendly production of valuable chemicals

At Catavis, we Rethink Chemistry

Technology

Enzymes

Enzymes are natural biomolecules present in all living organisms. Enzymes act as biocatalysts, converting chemical substrates into products in high specificity and efficiency. A broad range of enzymes has been identified, catalyzing a countless number of different chemical reactions

Free Enzymes

For chemical manufacturing, enzymes can accelerate chemical reactions enormously, saving energy and chemical waste. However, free enzymes are unstable, susceptible, and quickly lose their activity. This problem hinders their reliable and widespread use in chemical industry

Innovative Solution

Catavis developed an innovative self-assembly enzyme immobilization technology, that link enzymes together to form catalytic biomaterial, characterized by extraordinary stability and efficiency compared to free enzymes and other immobilization technologies. Let us introduce CataGel technology

CataGel Technology

Our innovative carrier-free enzyme immobilization technology transforms free enzymes into a gel-like, catalytically-active material – known as CataGel. The revolutionary CataGel technology unlocks the full potential of enzymes for reliable and efficient use in chemical synthesis. Our unique technology is compatible with the diverse enzyme families, bringing them into application in research as well as production processes.

Compared to other immobilization technologies which comprise only up to 10% enzymes in best cases, our IP-protected CataGel material is composed of 100% enzymes, enabling up to 100 times more productivity, significantly higher stability, and reduced cost.
