Discovery and training of microbial biocatalysts for biomass conversion using moving bed technology (MBT).
To develop a sustainable biorefinery process by using synthetic microbial communities and Moving Bed Technology to transform low cost marine rest raw materials to high value compounds.
|Time:||1. January 2016 – 31. December 2018|
|Financed by:||ERA Net|
|Commissioner:||The European Union|
|In cooperation with:||University of Tromsø, University of Uppsala, Sweden, Instituto de Tecnologia Quimica e Biologica, Portugal|
The MicroMBT secondary objectives:
– To deliver innovative biorefinery research of highest international scientific standard.
– To develop and implement advanced and sustainable biorefinary tools and technologies.
The objectives will be realized by taking advantage of the consortium’s interdisciplinary cooperation, infrastructure, knowledge and networking in marine microorganisms, bioprocessing and meta ‘omics technologies.
