Robust enzymes – the main requirement for industrial applications

Products derived from industrial biotechnology often compete with chemical processes. But what are the main aspects for successful applications of industrial biotechnology in manufacturing? Processes should be fast, cost-efficient and – from technological point of view – biocatalysts and enzymes need to deal with harsh process conditions.

This is the topic of ROBOX, an H2020 research project, where acib is taking part. Watch the video and find out how experts engineer enzymes in order to prepare them for their final destination.
