FEBRUARY 1, 2024: Mini-Symposium “Hydrogenases Meets Biotechnology”

On the 1st of February, the TUM in Campus Straubing organised an open symposium for all students and researchers about the topic “Hydrogenases meet Biotechnology”.
Grateful to our speakers and attendees for making this symposium a success! Have a look at the agenda!


๐Ÿ”ฌ๐ŸŒฑ Exciting Announcement! Our team is thrilled to kick off the CirculH2 project, funded by the EU, dedicated to advancing industrial biotechnology for a sustainable future! ๐Ÿ’ก๐ŸŒ

In our inaugural meeting which was held on 1st of February 2024 and coordinated by Nicolas Plumerรฉ we discussed our mission to revolutionize chemical production by transitioning to renewable, energy-efficient, and recyclable resources. Our recent breakthrough in developing robust and scalable hydrogenases opens new possibilities for sustainable catalysis. โš—๏ธ๐Ÿ”„

As part of our initiative, we organized an open symposium where scientists explored the intersection of hydrogenases and biotechnology. This symposium provided a platform for insightful discussions and showcased many interesting presentations from partners within the consortium. ๐ŸŽค๐Ÿ’ผ

CirculH2 aims to demonstrate the viability of using hydrogenases to drive biotransformations for specialty and commodity chemicals on an industrial scale. ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ๐Ÿ“Š

Our goal is to minimize energy usage and resource losses, contributing to decarbonization efforts and advancing European competitiveness in sustainable chemical production. ๐Ÿ”œ

The meeting was attended by representatives of partners forming the project consortium: Technical University of Munich, Delft University of Technology, EvoEnzyme, Cascat GmbH, University of Zagreb / Sveuฤiliลกte u Zagrebu, acib GmbH, Econutri, Axxence, AstraZeneca, Enzymicals AG and Sustainable Momentum.
