Novel bioprocesses for hemicellulose up-grading


BIO-HUG aims at securing the competitiveness of European starch industry by engineering new integrated bioprocesses. Steam pre-treatment and enzymatic hydrolysis of starch derived hemicellulose containing by-products will be optimised with respect to sugar yield and ferment ability. Novel enzyme cocktails tailor-made for wheat bran and starch factory effluents will be developed. Novel recombinant strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae fermenting arabinose and xylose will be generated with metabolic engineering and directed evolutionary approaches. When integrated into existing industrial processes the new hydrolysis and fermentation technologies will increase the ethanol yield from starch processing by-products. This translates to North American Production costs and assures the competitiveness of European starch industry.
