Natural Enzymes for Ecological Detergents to improve biologically certified Washing products

Project description

An eco-certified way to clean clothes

Doing laundry (and getting your clothes to look and smell fresh and clean) falls somewhere between an art and a science. Innovations in laundry detergents and washing products are constantly improving results. With this in mind, the EU-funded NEEDbioWash project will demonstrate the production of a natural enzyme product by solid-state fermentation (SSF) that will boost the washing performance of eco-certified laundry products. While conventional enzymes can degrade stains that have not been removed by surfactants, they are not allowed in eco-certified laundry detergents due to the use of GMOs. The innovative idea of this project is to use the SSF technique to avoid the need for genetic modification to enhance productivity.
