Synergies

How?

The application of enzymes in industrial processes can strengthen the bioeconomy, replacing oil-based chemistry.

However, enzymes still find hurdles for their industrial application, including:

  • Low success rates of discovery and engineering

  • Tedious and expensive methods to explore diversity

  • Limited activity or stability in the final application

OXIPRO will build on and implement competence and resources developed over the last decades

 

It will work with preceding and on-going national and international research initiatives. 

OXIPRO  will closely liaise and collaborate with its sibling projects funded under the same topic(s) FNR-16-2020 - Enzymes for more environment-friendly consumer products.

Build on and implement competence and resources developed over the last decades

 

Work with preceding and on-going national and international research initiatives. 

Closely liaise and collaborate with its sibling projects funded under the same topic(s) FNR-16-2020 - Enzymes for more environment-friendly consumer products.

FuturEnzyme

FuturEnzyme will develop technologies of the FUTURe for low-cost ENZYMEs for environment-friendly products andl develop the most advanced innovative solutions in a fast-track to market platform to discover, design, optimise and formulate enzymes. These will be used to develop economically viable products for textiles, detergents, and cosmetics.

EnXylaScope

EnXylaScope will discover novel enzymes for debranching xylan, a highly abundant polymer in plants. Productions systems for these enzymes will be optimised and the enzymes will be applied to produce a debranched (water-insoluble) form of xylan that has properties which make it suitable as ingredients in a scope of consumer products.

RadicalZ

RADICALZ assembles an interdisciplinary and intersectoral consortium to deliver faster, more versatile and more affordable tools for enzyme discovery and engineering, enabling the development of novel enzymes, new formulations and ingredients for more environment-friendly and healthier consumer products. RADICALZ will reduce the average time for enzyme discovery and evolution
