SMARTBOX will develop an advanced computational engineering platform specifically for oxidative enzymes. Relying on this platform, SMARTBOX will develop the one-enzyme conversion of HMF into FDCA and intermediates, and the one-enzyme conversion of lignin monomers into a potential biobased building block for polycarbonates and vanillin.
The BioBase4SME project intends to help Start-ups and SME to overcome technological and non-technological barriers to bring their innovation to market.
Biorizon has developed three commercially promising technologies for the conversion of wood, sugars and lignin into aromatics. By demonstrating the technology within this project on a larger scale, the confidence in the applicability of the technology on an industrial scale enhances and the risk to invest diminishes.
