JOIN US ON 8 JUNE 2021 FOR THE EU GREEN WEEK EVENT ONLINE TO DISCUSS HOW TO ACHIEVE ZERO POLLUTION OF AIR, SOIL AND WATER

The Market-driven Circular & Bioeconomy EU Green Week Partner Event brings together both science and industry of five European projects based on in the fields of low impact forestry & agriculture, low/no fossil chemistry and decarbonised transport. These include BIOVEXO Project – Biopesticides to fight Xylella, SUSFERT – SUStainable FERTtilisers, SUSTAINair – Sustainable aerospace value […]

Carbohydrate conversion to highly reactive intermediate chemicals for adhesives

In the SUSBIND project, 11 partners from science and industry are jointly researching bio-based binders for wood-based materials. Wood K plus leads a work package on the development of a new technology for the production of carbohydrate-based binders. The selection of suitable chemicals as well as the successful implementation of a production process for a […]

Promising enzymatic technology on the horizon & the up-scaling of the epoxidation of oil fatty acids for industrial applications

As a collaborative European research & innovation project looking for the development as well as the scale-up of the production of SUStainable bio-BINDer systems for wood-based panels, SUSBIND is addressing the need for more sustainable bio-based binders used for wood-based panel boards in the European furniture industry. Enzymatic reactions hold great potential to reshape the […]

Creating ad hoc enzymes for the production of the SUSBIND renewable bio-binders

Several thousand putative UPO (unspecific peroxygenases) sequences have been found in genetic databases and fungal genomes, indicating their widespread occurrence in the whole fungal kingdom, but only a handful of UPOs have been characterized so far, and almost nothing substantial is known on their natural function(s). Their reliable heterologous expression remains tricky, despite all recent […]

Hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) – A valuable, bio-derived platform chemical

Hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) is a promising bio-derived platform chemical for value-added chemicals. For a sustainable development, the use of renewable resources must be enhanced and more sustainable ways for chemical production must come into focus. Lately, the realization of industrial scale HMF production has gained much more attention. Carbohydrate conversion to HMF HMF combines the structure […]
