The development of sustainable and resource-saving processes is a major focus of R&D&I work, also supported heavily by the European Commission as part of the Green Deal and the sustainability efforts. Four international research projects, all funded via the EU Horizon2020 framework, are currently exploring the utilisation of enzymes in a variety of industrial applications to make our products greener.
Within the project HiPerIn 2.0, CLIB is looking at industry sectors which could benefit from a structural change away from fossil-based towards biotechnological processes based on renewable substrates. The targeted product groups combine high functionality, designable product properties, and a high added value. We are focusing on five targeted sectors: Textiles & Fibres, Coatings & Adhesives, Personal & Home Care, Food & Feed, and Flavours & Fragrances.
We are happy to dedicate our annual end-of-year December forum to the four EU-funded projects FuturEnzyme, EnXylaScope, OXIPRO and RADICALZ, giving them a platform to present their concept and selected scientific results with a high linkage towards industrial applications to an interested international audience.
In this CLIB online forum event, you will hear from researchers and experts about the opportunities and challenges in the development and production of novel enzymes which will revolutionise common consumer products. A detailed programme will be published in the following days on this event site.
Participation is free, but you will need to register via RSVP on the English event site.
