Cell-Like ‘Molecular Assembly Lines’ of Programmable Reaction Sequences as Game-Changers in Chemical Synthesis

Project description

New method to achieve zero waste in chemical synthesis

The process of chemical synthesis is vital for a wide range of substances essential for daily life. The several process steps needed for effective synthesis during pharmaceutical drug production generates extensive amounts of unsustainable waste. The EU-funded CLASSY project envisages a method that will eliminate many process steps aiming towards generating no waste and becoming the ‘chemical factory of the future’. The project intends to develop an advanced chemical reactor inspired by how living systems regulate catalytic activity. It will radically change the manufacturing of chemical and pharmaceutical products and eliminate waste generation. The project is developed by a specialised consortium keen to produce new scientific knowledge on eco-friendly options for renewability, energy efficiency and sustainability.
