LANXESS partners with Evocatal to develop biocatalysts for rubber production [Registered]

LANXESS, which produces specialty chemicals, is partnering with the biotechnology firm Evocatal in the development of biotechnological methods for the synthesis of precursors for the rubber production. The goal of the project is to make use of local renewable materials in the manufacture of rubber upstream products. The cooperation aims at identifying new pathways for synthesis and developing effective biocatalysts. Launched in September 2011, the partnership is part of the “ThRuBio” project (Thermoplastics and Rubber via Biotechnological Synthesis) – a research consortium that includes Evonik Industries AG, LANXESS Deutschland GmbH and the Technical University of Munich. The research project, which…
