Mimicking nature could lead to greener processes for production of novel chemicals

Conventional catalytic reactions rely heavily on harsh chemicals and extreme environments requiring energy-intensive processes. In contrast, the field of applied biocatalysis exploits environmentally friendly multi-step chemo-enzymatic processes that mimic the efficiency of cell metabolism. Chemo-enzymatic processes take advantage of nature's catalysts, enzymes. They are highly specific given the selectivity of enzymes for their substrates, and by their nature, continuous processes well-suited to modern flow chemistry and bioreactor technologies. INCITE is developing novel and modular chemo-enzymatic processes that can be flexibly combined for the industrial production of commodity and fine chemicals. Technology could lead to a greener way to make the starting materials for common products such as fertilisers and detergents.
