European Research Consortium

Nine academic and industrial partners have given the go-ahead for a joint research project in the field of enzymatic production of high-quality chemicals. At a meeting in Leipzig on March 12, nine academic and industrial partners have given the go-ahead for a joint research project in the field of enzymatic production of high-quality chemicals. The project was created by c-LEcta in life, the for-dermittel commitments issued in March 2009. The project is coordinated by c-LEcta and comprises a total of two more start-up companies as well as the industrial company DSM. Enzymes are biological catalysts, which play a key role in the production of many chemicals.

The wide product range extends to fine and special chemicals for agriculture, cosmetic and food applications of high quality Chiral intermediates for the pharmaceutical industry. Biocatalytic processes must be economically competitive in comparison with other non-biological solutions and the high meet the timing requirements of the market. Natural enzymes used for Biocatalysis often exhibit a non-optimal acceptance for industrial-related substrates. That limits their widespread use in industrial processes. Key technologies such as for example enzyme engineering have a high economic value, since they can be used to optimize enzymes for industrial processes. Biocat closely within the project”the consortium partners strive for, a fully integrated enzyme engineering platform to develop.

With this platform, it will be possible to identify new enzymes for the synthesis of novel chemical products of high industrial relevance in very short time. The sustainability of the processes and the economic benefits will be available in the scientific work in the focus. The consortium comprises three technology companies (c-LEcta, Biosilta, Bioingenium), an industrial partner (DSM pharmaceutical products) and five academic institutions (Technical University of Denmark, Prof. Woodley; Technische Universitat Dresden, Prof. Barth; University of Oulu, Dr. Hillukkala; Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, Prof. Lopez Santin; University of Leipzig, Prof. Hofmann / Dr. Robert Gunther). The Consortium is coordinated by c-LEcta. About c-LEcta the c-LEcta GmbH is a company of white biotechnology and works in the field of industrial exploitation of biological processes. The focus is on the use of enzymes, so proteins with catalytic properties.

Carbon Frame For Road Bikes With BINDER Technology

The substance of the other Star, carbon is used when something must be extremely light and highly stable. In the Swiss Grenchen, the world’s first automatically produced carbon frame for road bikes are using BINDER technology. in 2011, the Australian of Cadel Evans, the tour de France on a BMC won race thanks to the active support of his teammates, who contested the hardest stage race in the world with a carbon road bike from Grenchen. They call it Stargate”and what comes out of it, seems to be like from another planet. A wheel with a diameter larger than a man with outstretched arms brings one of the strongest and lightest materials out, humanity knows today: finely braided carbon the miracle material for bike frames. The Stargate”is actually a high-tech weaving wheel and part of a complex automation system. In it the bike manufacturer BMC in the Swiss Grenchen manufactures fully automated carbon frame as the first and only one in the world. A 100% automation is equivalent with 100 percent of consistently high quality.

“” “Because its developers by BMC have perfection in series, the impeccable bike” or short impec “called, what is so much like the Immaculate wheel”. Seamless tube had to carbon frame so far layered painstakingly crafted from single mats, shaped and glued, making bmc way as clean and smooth as a Swiss precision movement. Each individual frame is in the Stargate”as a whole to the so-called positive form around woven. More than 100 coils stocked with Gossamer threads run at breathtaking speed through the braiding wheel and weave a seamless, flexible tube made of carbon fibres in a matter of seconds. A certain similarity with a black Mr. sock is to have at this stage of production by the hand. The technology of the braiding wheel was known so far primarily from the production of steel ropes are used, for example, for mountain railways.
