What we do

Alkion innovates in plant tissue technologies. We have invented a process of biostimulation of plant genes in bioreactors to improve the production of molecules of interest in specific organs, with yields up to 800x compared to greenhouse culture. From the 1L lab reactor to our 300L “Alkaburst 2.0”, we are building the most efficient vertical & molecular farming system in the world for the production of high value active compounds. Alkion owns 4 patent families and exclusive licenses covering our breakthrough processes and technologies.

 

Our commitments

Sustainability is our priority

 

We are developing the most sustainable botanical platform. Through a carbon neutral approach, our closed-circuit technology saves >95% energy, 98% water, 95% space* and recycles 95% of waste.

*compared to other state-of-the-art methods.

The highest quality

 

Our technology allows us to work with the purest biomass, with no use of pesticides or any other adulterants, making our extractions and purifications cleaner and greener.

Consistency

 

Thanks to our micropropagation process and strictly controlled culture conditions, we can guarantee a variability under 5% batch-to-batch consistently all year round for safety of patients and consumers.

Low cost

 

With Alkion’s technology, highest quality finally becomes affordable.  With productivity increases orders of magnitude above current best practices, we can offer access to rare and expensive plant compounds for industrial use.

Security of production

 

Our method of plant culture in confined bioreactors with optimal utilisation of 3D space offers a security level commensurate with the production of psychotropic compounds for medical purposes.
