BIOOX Newsletter - September 2016, 3rd Edition, now published!

This month (September 2016), BIOOX will enter its final year. BIOOX has already delivered valuable science offering new insights into the enzymes and processes which will be required to develop new industrial bio-oxidation reactions. The potential for biocatalysis to improve the safety, cost, and sustainability of chemical manufacturing is becoming clear, and the final stage of the project will focus on bringing together all of the knowledge and systems developed so far in order to demonstrate those benefits for our chosen reactions. Through demonstration scale processes, incorporating new enzymes, reactor technologies and process designs, we will be able to validate these technology platforms to enable future industrial development beyond the lifespan of the project.

The 2016 September edition of the BIOOX Newsletter features articles on:

  • Structure guided redesign of for improved terminal hydroxylation of fatty acids
  • Workshop for Young Researchers in Biocatalysis - Bridging Chemistry and Biology 2016
  • BIOOX Meeting at Firmenich, Geneva, Switzerland
  • University of Manchester collaborate with GSK on alcohol oxidases
  • BIOOX Researchers attend GRC BIOCATALYSIS 2016
  • Green Catalysis by Design and Student Winter School
  • Twenty-four innovative agri-tech initiatives have been awarded a share of £16 million in government backing
