Training network on the conversion of CO2 by smart autotrophic biorefineries

Project description

Paving the way for autotrophic biotransformation processes

The turn towards renewable resources has enhanced the development of new processes such as those taking place in autotrophic biorefineries, where CO2 is transformed from a pollutant into a renewable resource. The EU-funded ConCO2rde project will train 11 early-stage researchers in pioneering research projects on the combination of synthetic biology methods with metabolic and process engineering and H2/CO2/O2-based fermentation. Moreover, it will deliver training in the industrial implementation of autotrophic biotransformation. The project will be carried out by a consortium of one transnational institute, six universities, eight industrial partners and one cluster, providing the required tools and preparing the next generation of researchers for the implementation of sustainable autotrophic processes in the EU’s biotech sector.
