ABOUT APLANTEX

The Aplantex scientific team has developed a unique process to produce certified high-value molecules that enjoy strong demand from major players in many industries. The core of this green biotechnology process for efficient and sustainable phytochemistry consists of the continuous production in a controlled environment of biomass originating from photosynthetic plant replicators. This abundant biomass is dried and the extraction, fragmentation, and purification stages allow the separation of the specific molecules essential to the production of popular products in the health, beauty, and food industries.

The photosynthetic plant replicators can store up to 40% of their dry weight of atmospheric CO2 and, in Quebec, can be grown year-round in a controlled environment using sustainable hydroelectric power. With its eco-friendly process, Aplantex is thus a preferred supplier for any company looking to comply with ESG criteria.
