Towards a sustainable biobased industry - Highlighting the impact of extremophiles.
Further application of extremophiles has the potential to improve sustainability of existing biotechnological processes towards a greener biobased industry.
Extremely thermoactive archaeal endoglucanase from a shallow marine hydrothermal vent from Vulcano Island
Vul_Cel5A represents a promising novel archaeal endo-β-glucanase for application in biorefineries for an efficient biomass pre-treatment and showed tolerance against various chemical reagents.
Biomass-degrading glycoside hydrolases of archaeal origin
This review will focus on the detection, characterization and similarities of archaeal GHs and their unique characteristics, and the potential of hyperthermozymes and their impact on high-temperature industrial applications have not yet been exhausted.
Digitalization in microbiology - Paving the path to sustainable circular bioeconomy.
Challenges and opportunities of digitalization including multi-omics approaches in discovering and exploiting the microbial diversity of the planet are presented with the aim to identify robust biocatalysts for application in sustainable bioprocesses as part of the transition from a fossil-based to a bio-based circular economy.
