Hengduan Mountains Biotechnology

Hengduan Mountains Biotechnology Ltd., or in short Hengduanbiotech, is a company dedicated to plant tissue culture and orchid propagation in particular. A commercial spin-off of a government-funded conservation project in the Biodiversity Hotspot of Hengduan Mountains (also known as Mountains of Southwest China) which ran from 2001-2008,
Hengduanbiotech has gained local leadership in propagating a wide range of native Chinese orchids in vitro. A special focus is on the Chinese slipper orchids, including the 32 native Cypripedium species and 24 native Paphiopedilum species. It was an easy decision for Dr. Holger Perner, who has been engaged for many years in orchid conservation work and staff member of the Huanglong National Park, Sichuan, as well as technical director of Hengduanbiotech, to foster the joining of both organisations to the OSSSU project. In October 2007 Hengduanbiotech was in charge of the technical details for the regional OSSSU Asian Workshop in Chengdu, which was implemented under the patronage of the Huanglong National Park.
