Project Bionexgen

Project title:

Bionexgen - Developing the Next Generation of Biocatalysts for Industrial Chemical Synthesis

Project type:

Call: FP7-KBBE-2010-4
Theme: KBBE.2010.3.3-02



Function: Scientific coordination

Email: tanja.schaerfl@acib.at

BIONEXGEN will develop the next generation of biocatalysts to be used for eco-efficient manufacturing processes in the chemical industry. A collaboration by industrial and academic partners have identified the key technology fields of amine synthesis, polymers from renewable resources, glycoscience and wider oxidase application as four key areas where the next generation of biocatalysts that will lead to improvements in both economic and environmental performance of the chemical manufacturing industries. This project will enable industry to use renewable resources with reduced greenhouse gas production as compared to their fossil counterparts and deliver biotechnological routes with reduced energy consumption and less toxic wastes compared to conventional chemical processes.
