Since its creation, the Charles Gerhardt Montpellier Institute has supported young innovative companies in the fields of Energy, Health and the Environment. In recent years, the ICGM has developed an industrial and scientific partnership with several companies, which now operate in its fold.
CarboZym is a CNRS spin-off project from the Charles Gerhardt Montpellier Institute. Carbozym develops innovative, bio-based and highly porous materials for cell-free synthetic biology. The materials at the heart of this enzyme immobilization technology will enable the implementation of new, more environmentally friendly processes for the preparation and manufacture of value-added molecules for the chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food, flavor and fragrance industries.
CarboZym is led by Jullien Drone (MCF ENSCM) and Nicolas Brun (CR CNRS) in the Hybrid Porous Materials Department (MPH). This project is financially supported by the Occitanie Region, SATT AxLR and Lab’MUSE Chimie. Carbozym is supported by the CNRS Innovation and Deeptech Founders RISE programs.
