TWB inaugurated its new premises and equipment on 7 June. The exponential growth of TWB since its creation in 2012 has led to its move to new premises for the hosting of numerous projects (57 between 2012 and 2015) and recently acquired advanced equipment. Thanks to its original business model of open innovation applied to the field of industrial biotechnology in order to speed time to market of renewable carbon solutions as a substitute for petrol, TWB was awarded the call for project for the “Investments for the Future Program”. With 18 million Euros of contracts signed from 2012 to 2015, it is now very close to the target set for 2019 of 21.8 million Euros.
