ROBOX: Expanding the industrial use of Robust Oxidative Biocatalysts for the conversion and production of alcohols

Oxygen functionalities are key functional groups in many of today’s chemicals and materials. The efficient introductions of oxygen-functionalities into raw materials are key chemical transformations in bulk and fine chemicals. Innovative biocatalytic oxidation routes using molecular oxygen under benign and mild conditions can greatly improve the sustainability and economics of processes. Such processes have so far mainly been applied in the pharmaceuticals sector, where the enzyme-catalyzed step often represents the highest added value, and the high product price (> €1000/kg) justifies suboptimal enzyme production and limitations in catalytic efficiency. In order to achieve broader industrial application of enzymatic biooxidation processes in larger volume but lower price chemical markets, ROBOX has targeted demonstration of the techno-economic viability of biotransformations catalysed by four types of robust oxidative enzymes: P450 monooxygenases, Baeyer-Villiger MonoOxygenase, Alcohol Dehydrogenases and Alcohol Oxidases.

CARBAZYMES: Sustainable industrial processes based on a C-C bond-forming enzyme platform

C-C bond forming reactions are of central importance in industrial organic synthesis to create relevant new molecules from readily available material. However, the implementation of biocatalytic carboligation processes has remained a promising but largely unexplored potential due to a number of technical hurdles. CARBAZYMES has addressed such challenges through an interdisciplinary approach to achieve the biocatalytic synthesis of APIs and bulk chemicals corresponding to market needs. CARBAZYMES has targeted the biocatalytic synthesis of products identified by industrial partners in the consortium to meet market needs. The project targets syntheses at technical scale using a broad platform of 4 types of unique C-C bond-forming enzymes, as well as the capabilities to rapidly evolve those biocatalysts to operate under industrial process conditions.

Registration is free, including lunch and a networking reception. Please remember that non-attendance may still incur costs, so please notify the organiser as soon as possible if you are unable to attend for any reason.
