An Original Business Model: The Integrated Biorefinery
The biorefinery, considered as a single industrial entity, becomes economically attractive when different factories making up an industrial ecosystem are present on the same site, where the firms
Producing PHAs in the bioeconomy — Towards a sustainable bioplastic
Abstract Biodegradable polymers such as polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) can reduce pollution caused by the increasing global polymer demand. Although industrial production of PHAs grew rapidly in the
Biomass Pretreatment, Biorefineries, and Potential Products for a Bioeconomy Development
Lignocellulosic biomass is a widely available and cheap organic material that can be used for the production of biofuels and numerous chemical products. The development of a bioeconomy using such
Soil governance in the transition towards a sustainable bioeconomy – A review
Abstract Soils are a fundamental factor in the transition towards a sustainable bioeconomy. In this context, society depends on fertile soils and their long-term maintenance because of their various
Activity-Based Screening of Metagenomic Libraries for Hydrogenase Enzymes.
Here it is outlined how to identify hydrogenase enzymes from metagenomic libraries through an activity-based screening approach, and a new method enables screening of 48 meetagenomic fosmid clones in parallel.
A multi-substrate approach for functional metagenomics-based screening for (hemi)cellulases in two wheat straw-degrading microbial consortia unveils novel thermoalkaliphilic enzymes
This study employed a high-throughput method for rapid screening of fosmid metagenomic libraries for (hemi)cellulose-degrading enzymes and revealed high hit rates, as compared with recent other studies.
