Final Report - ELECTROEXTRACTION (Protein electroextraction coupled to direct sorption - a new route for primary recovery of intracellular bioproducts from industrial yeast)

Project ID: 222220
Funded under: FP7-SME

Abstract

This is the final report of the ELECTROEXTRACTION project which was funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project proposed a novel primary recovery strategy, which targets intracellular derived products, which were biosynthesised in several microbial hosts, namely yeasts, algae, and bacteria. The report reveals that protein electroextraction was introduced in industrial practice as an easy, selective, and economic method for intracellular product release with minimal product damage. The report covers how this novel processing-route was developed on the basis of: a) protein liberation by cell envelope (electro) permeabilization (i.e., ""electroextraction"") and b) direct product sorption (e.g. utilising a finite bath or a fluidised bed contactor).
