BioSC Spotlight "Modular Biotransformations in a Circular Bioeconomy"

The production of bulk and fine chemicals in a circular bioeconomy will be characterized by new process chains where biotransformations will play an important role. Biogenic raw materials will cover a wide range of qualities and quantities, from perennial biomass to agricultural waste streams, complemented by non-biogenic carbon sources such as CO2 or plastic waste. To deal with this broad spectrum, the conventional „One substrate – one product“ way of production needs to be evolved to complex „Multi substrate – multi product“ process chains where classical chemical transformations and biotransformations are combined.

BioSC Workshop "Closing Cycles in the Plastics Bioeconomy"

Plastic products are an integral part of modern society. As a result of the high availability of cheap building blocks from petroleum resources and the wide application range of plastics, they are found in many items used in everyday life. However, as petroleum-based polymers are highly durable, plastic waste is creating a global pollution crisis. In light of this dilemma, novel concepts are required that enable effective recycling of plastic waste and simultaneously add value to these waste streams.
