2G BIOPIC

March 2015 - April 2018

2G BIOPIC proposes a new approach: bioethanol production from lignocellulosic biomass. This technology is based on a highly effective clean deconstruction of lignocellulosic biomass, an advanced organosolv technology, for which several patents have been submitted in the past decade by CIMV. An original and efficient biomass refining technology allows optimal extraction of the three main biomass components and downstream biotechnological transformation.

BioKatalyse

October 2013 - February 2016

The aim of BIOKATALYSE is to acquaint traditional chemical industry with the Key Enabling Technology Biocatalysis. Biocatalysis is a technology that uses enzymes instead of chemical catalysts to catalyse or speed up chemical processes. The target group is the Flemish chemical industry that is mainly making use of conventional chemical conversion techniques.

Bio Base NWE

January 2013 - December 2015

The project aims to accelerate the growth of the biobased economy, EU and local partners joined forces by providing financial, technological, training, networking and political support to enterprises in North West Europe (NWE) innovating in biobased products and processes.

Novosides

January 2011 - December 2014

The goal of the Novosides project is the development of biocatalytic processes for the glycosylation of small organic molecules such as flavonoids, alkaloids and steroids. Glycosylation can drastically improve both the physicochemical and biological properties of these molecules (e.g. slow release, improved solubility and stability, taste modification, drug targeting), but few biocatalysts are currently available to perform this modification cost-efficiently at industrial scale.
