Who We Are

ANiMOX develops processes for the recovery of valuable natural materials from protein-containing by-products and uses this technology for the production of protein-based new materials for chemistry and biotechnology. The processes, products and services offered by ANiMOX contribute to an efficient utilization of resources, improve economic and ecological balance in nature and increase the quality of all life. Our mission is to become the leading mid-sized company in the development of new technologies for reprocessing of organic materials, especially protein-containing by-products and waste materials.

To achieve this goal we have heavily invested in research and development. ANiMOX is an innovative company that has in its short history already registered several patents and trademarks.
