METabolic EXplorer

A new green biotechnology company specialised in the development of bioprocesses

Founded in 1999, METabolic EXplorer is a biochemicals company. Its goal is to help industry companies contend with higher oil prices by continuing their production in other, sustainable ways. Using the proven principle of industrial fermentation, METabolic EXplorer can replace existing petrochemical processes by harnessing a broad range of plant-based feedstocks. Optimising the yield of non-pathogenic bacteria in a confined and controlled universe, the group helps to manufacture chemical compounds used to manufacture everyday products–plastics, textile fibres, paints, solvents or animal foodstuffs. These alternative processes are currently focused on three products representing markets worth an estimated total of close to €7 billion. They will be used in several ways, including for the construction of its own facilities, industrial partnerships under joint ventures and licences. METabolic EXplorer, which is headquartered in Clermont-Ferrand, France, is listed on Euronext in Paris. 
April 2007: METabolic EXplorer (METEX) successfully completed its IPO, raising €52 million. 
Market capitalisation at IPO date: €162 million
