Biocatilisys design

The third step “Biocatilisys design” has as goal the design of the biocatalysis component of the biorefinery.

The third step “Biocatilisys design” has as goal the design of the biocatalysis component of the biorefinery. Multiple approaches will be attempted in order to tailor an efficient cocktail of cellulosic enzymes to obtain maximum sugar yields from the pretreated biomass. New enzymes will be searched and enzyme optimization will be attempted in order to increase thermal stability and decrease sensitivity to product inhibition. Strategies for optimization of enzyme production and for enzyme recycling will be tested to further reduce the hydrolysis costs.
