melt&marble chalmers ventures 2022


Melt&Marble (formerly Biopetrolia) was founded as a way to provide solutions to some of today’s sustainability problems. The company originated from Jens Nielsen’s Systems and Synthetic Biology group at Chalmers University of Technology, a group known for its in-depth knowledge and world-leading expertise in synthetic biology and metabolic engineering of microbial cell factories. The company was originally founded as a patent holding company for the research group, financed by providing yeast engineering services. In 2021, the company pivoted to focus on fats for plant-based foods.
