Bioprocesses for the optimized, integrated production of butyl esters from sustainable resources - Call of Project ERA-CoBioTech - BESTER Project (04/2018 - 03/2021)

The ERA-CoBioTech project BESTER establishes clostridial bioprocesses for an optimized integrated production of a range of different butyl esters using lignocellulosic sugars as a sustainable feedstock for the commodity chemicals market. Efficient organic acid production processes will be developed, which can be linked to ABE fermentation processes as a source of BuOH. BESTER will thereby address in a coordinated way the two key handles for efficient production of the three acids, i.e. a) Systems biology driven strain engineering using Synthetic biology principles to establish new acid production in suitable clostridial chassis strains and mitigate key metabolic bottlenecks hampering high productivity, and b) smart process design and integration to prevent inhibitory effects of the acids produced and the BuOH added in efficient bioprocesses with continuous enzymatic ester product formation and recovery. Lignocellulosic feedstock hydrolysate will be used as the main feedstock in BESTER. The primary project deliverable will be a set of scalable, robust, and highly productive manufacturing processes for selected butyl esters. Read more ...

 

Development and applications of computer model dedicated to REACH regulation - Call of Project FUI 17 - DAMIER Project (07/2014 - 06/2017)

The objective of DAMIER Project is to replace some of experimental studies currently requested for the recording of chemical substances according to REACH regulation by an IT modelling of the physico-chemical and écotoxicological data. This modelling is established on the use of QSAR models (Quantitative Structure - Activity Relationship), Read more ...

Project methodology to develop intensification of processes - Call of Project ANR CD2I - PROCIP Project (01/2011 - 12/2014)

The aim of this collaborative Project is to develop a methodology of technical project management to be able to support the decision in the frame of the intensification of processes. Industrialy, the intensification of processes has to allow to decrease time to market for a product by designing the most optimal process in term of energy consumption, safety, environmental impacts, investment cost, etc. The main objective of the "PROCIP" Project is thus to develop of a general methodology dedicated to intensification of processes.
