High Performance Protein Fiber materials 

Scalable production of ENA protein nanofibrils, and their spinning into Sporesilks, thereby introducing a portfolio of radically new functionalized textile materials with tuneable mechanical and functional properties. 

ACTIVITIES of the Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant

BBEPP is responsible for the development of an efficient fermentation process and downstream purification protocol to produce ENA nanofibrils from renewable feedstocks.
