21st.BIO’s pilot plant inauguration

By May 12, 2024June 3rd, 2024No Comments

Last Friday, we were lucky to welcome over a hundred guests to the grand opening of our pilot plant facility.

We started with an exclusive roundtable, gathering twenty executives and visionaries from the most prominent financial, industrial, and political institutions in Denmark and Europe. Together, we discussed the technological leadership of Europe in biosolutions, how to maintain it and the importance of establishing large scale biomanufacturing facilities in the coming years, so that the innovation born in European countries can grow, scale and reach market here.

We inaugurated our pilot plant facility: Margrethe Vestager, Executive Vice President of the European Commission cut the ribbon alongside our two co-founders, Thomas Schmidt, CEO and Per Falholt, CSO.

The party started as the larger crowd arrived and we heard speeches from our CEO, Thomas Schmidt, Margrethe Vestager, as well as Peder Lundquist, CEO at EIFO.

It was amazing to showcase our partnership with AMSilk, with both Gudrun Vogtentanz, CSO, and Isabel Rosenberger, Senior Manager Marketing & Communication, onsite to educate our guests about the incredible wonders of spider silk, and display some of their products.

Our 21st.BIO colleagues took turns taking all guests on a guided tour presenting our technology, strain engineering capabilities, and of course the shiny new pilot facility.

It was an incredible day for all of us. Thank you all for coming and making Friday a great success.
