Sustainable production of volatile esters

Project

Sustainable production of volatile esters

In this project, we aim on producing volatile esters as a bulk product by mesophilic and thermophilic bacteria. Due to the esters volatility a process is designed that makes use of in-situ product removal by gas stripping. We combine molecular biology methods with process design aspects, such as modelling, in-situ product removal, Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).
