Yves Chauvin Prize: Metabolic engineering at the heart of bio-based processes

Within the context of the energy transition, new bioprocesses are emerging as substitutes for processes using fossil resources. For example, Clostridium acetobutylicum is a microorganism capable of converting the large variety of sugars derived from lignocellulosic biomass into a raft of bio-based substances, via fermentation. This makes it a potential candidate for producing biofuels and/or chemical intermediates that can be used by industry....

Biofilm development of bacteria for the production of biobased C3/C4 alcohols

The market for biobased alcohol is currently largely focused on the production of ethanol for use in biofuels. C3 and C4 alcohols are platform molecules for biobased chemistry, but their development is hampered by low productivity levels...
