LEV2050 has developed ECO-BIOMASS, the only solution in the wine industry to produce customized wines efficiently using selected native microorganisms. ECO-BIOMASS allows to select the optimal microorganisms of each vineyard and reproduce them in patented bioreactors while feeding them with specifically designed nutrients. This process represents an absolute innovation in the sector since there is no other company that offers this type of product.
The results of the feasibility study carried out within the framework of Phase 1 of the SME Instrument, confirmed that ECO-BIOMASS allows a significant differentiation of the wineries betting on autochthonous microorganisms and eco-sustainability. This study, where the potential of the ECO-BIOMASS project is reflected, defines the most appropriate business model and marketing plan for the international commercialization of the products and services offered by LEV2050. One of the objectives will be to carry out tests in a limited number of relevant wineries, so that they can act as prescribers of the work of LEV2050 in their country of origin. Similarly, prospection will take place in the target markets in order to find the right distributors for this innovative offer. Finally, funds will be allocated for marketing as well as for communication scaling up in different media specialized in the oenological microbiology industry.
