Xylome uses metabolic engineering to develop non-conventional yeasts. We create technology to make novel lipids, palm oil substitutes, biochemicals and enzymes. Xylome’s technology increases the value and diversity of byproducts from industrial yeast fermentations while reducing operating costs.

Xylome’s high-barrier technology sits at the crossroads of agriculture, food, pharmaceuticals and sustainable biofuels
