Manchester University leads European Bionexgen project [Registered]

“Developing the Next Generation of Biocatalysts for Industrial Chemical Synthesis – Bionexgen” is the title of an ambitious pan-European research programme that will develop the next generation of biocatalysts to be used for eco-efficient manufacturing processes in the chemical industry. This 3 year European Union FP7 funded (€7.8 million) project is led by Professor Nick Turner, Director of the Centre of Excellence for Biocatalysis (CoEBio3), and aims to replace traditional chemical manufacturing methods with greener biotechnology routes. The project brings together microbiologists, enzymologists, chemists, engineers and process development scientists to enable industry to use biotechnology and renewable resources to replace…
