Meliora Bio upcycles biomass to new and innovative products. Through their work, they show a way forward within sustainable production and positive impact for consumers and environment.

Advanced Biofuel

Meliora Bio production entails advanced bioethanol produced from straw, enzymes and yeast with a very low CO2 footprint. Bioethanol produced from agricultural waste is used for a wide range of applications, the current, predominant use being to blend with gasoline for car fuel. Blending of our bioethanol into gasoline will cause a 1:1 reduction of 90 percent CO2 emission from the car. 

Already today, ethanol is blended with gasoline, but this ethanol is produced from feedstock like corn and sugarcanes, and thus have lower CO2 displacement. When using Meliora Bio bioethanol, the food for energy challenge is solved.


In a dedicated partnership with COMET BIO, a Canadian manufacturer of healthy and sustainable food ingredients, Meliora Bio supports COMET BIO in producing prebiotics using other parts of the same local wheat straw to extract hemicellulose. The partnership further benefits the farmers we work with by providing additional demand for straw and improving the circularity of the food chain.
