Locus FS: Leading the ESG Evolution


Locus Fermentation Solutions (Locus FS) is globally recognized for its ability to customize and scale novel bio-based ingredients that are proven to outperform chemicals. They successfully address the world’s largest profitability and ESG pain points.

We have the innovative biomanufacturing technology needed to produce microbes and biosurfactants at the volumes and price points needed for widespread adoption, in a multitude of new applications.

Driven to Transform Chemistry with Biology

IP Driven

We’re an accelerator that provides scientific and operational expertise to incubate intellectual property until it can be incorporated into industry-specific operating companies.

Data Driven

At any one time, our team may be conducting hundreds of experiments across over a dozen industry platforms.

Science Driven

Our team is comprised of world-class experts in microbiology, fermentation and numerous other scientific disciplines from around the world.

Difference Driven

We are prioritizing the biggest challenges in the biggest industries, while doing the spade work necessary to bring a multitude of data and IP-backed solutions to market.

We’re dedicated to fermenting 100% bio-based ingredients

that enable a rapid and profitable transition to a decarbonized world

Tremendous global demand exists for biological alternatives to chemicals in every industry, but global fermentation capabilities fell short…until now. Locus FS has the innovative biomanufacturing technology needed to scale production of bio-based ingredients at the volumes needed for widespread adoption.

We use patented biomanufacturing technology

that’s key to our disruption and leadership in all applications and markets

Using multiple patented fermentation processes and modular designs, we create low-CAPEX biomanufacturing facilities that rapidly produce customizable microbes, biosurfactants and other bio-based ingredients. They are used as chemical alternatives that profitably and sustainably alleviate global challenges.

Experienced Management and World-Class Science Experts

Locus FS was founded by a team that has decades of experience in delivering the un-tapped benefits of microorganisms and their metabolites. Our patented fermentation technology and extensive knowledge of microbial and biosurfactant applications are producing results never thought possible with chemical solutions.

“In the past, the terms “green” or “environmentally-friendly” had drawbacks. When a technology was green it was assumed to under-perform compared to its chemical equivalents. This was the price to pay for having a technology that didn’t further pollute our planet, poison the population, or waste our natural recourses. 

With Locus FS, it’s different. For us, green is secondary to efficacy. We understand that while green is crucial—for an industry to embrace a green technology it must be as effective as it chemicals counterpart and cost effective.  

Chemistry is often used to replace biology. In the industries that Locus FS is involved in, users will soon be able to revert to green solutions at lower costs, with greater efficacy.”
