Bizente in Media

During April, Bizente has appeared twice in the on-line press. Interempresas Magazine, an on-line publication in Spanish, specialised in industry and corporate news published the article entitled "Atiip coodinates a European project to biodegrade plastics using enzimes and to recycle aircrafts" which highlighted the biocatalytic model of enzymatic degradation to recover fibres and resins developed [...]

Customisation of selected ligninases for resin degradation

Being a main goal of BIZENTE, partner EvoEnzyme has been constructing mutagenic libraries of enzymes and analyzing individual engineered variants with improved activity on model molecules. Model molecules of the four selected resins (Hexflow®RTM6, Araldine®LY1568, DION®IMPACT9102 and R930A) were used as substrates on high-throughput screenings after several libraries were functionally expressed in S. cerevisiae. Figure [...]

The management of the innovation in BIZENTE

A very important aspect on the management of BIZENTE is to create a guide to help handling the innovation elements from the project. The first Innovation Plan (D6.3) formulates and programs these management activities and should be follow by all partners under the guidance of BIZENTE’s Innovation Board (BIB). Leading and coordinating Innovation, the board [...]

Analysing the sustainability of the BIZENTE’s outcomes

BIZENTE project has started the LCA and LLC analysis which represent a step towards the performance of a sustainability assessment of the project outcomes. The final results of the LCA will be used mainly for decision making in order to analyse the variation of the potential environmental impact in a scenario in which the residues [...]

Meeting of BIZENTE’s consortium

On the 17th of November 2021, Bizente's partners met online to analyse the progress of the work performed during the last six months and plan the actions for the next six months. We are making relevant progresses in the characterization of reference resins, the modification of enzymes and resins and the development of degradation methods. [...]

Javier Viña: “BIZENTE applies a revolutionary degradation system on composites.”

Javier Viña is Co-founder and Scientific Manager of EvoEnzyme. He is PhD in Biochemistry at Prof. Miguel Alcalde´s lab in the Institute of Catalysis and Petrochemistry from the CSIC with stays at the Technical University of Graz (Prof. Anton Glieder). As an enzymologist he brings his broad knowledge in library creation methods and [...]

New solutions for recycling thermoplastics

Plastic waste is one of the major threats to our ecosystems and the current end-of-life given to plastics negatively affects the environment. Circular economy is about to optimally manage waste in order to create an effective after-use plastic economy as a main strategy to promote recycling rates of plastics and to avoid further plastic littering [...]

Evaluating potential enzyme candidates for degradation of specific thermoset composites

Within the BIZENTE project, TU Delft is responsible to evaluate the activity of enzymes on low molecular-weight model compounds of representive thermoset composites. The model compounds should comprise the same main structural elements of the target polymers in order to understand how the enzymes could degrade the respective polymer. The chemical structures of the intially [...]

Studying the potential of ligninolytic enzymes in the degradation of complex thermoset composites

From the beginning of BIZENTE, partner EvoEnzyme has been studying the potential of ligninolytic enzymes in the degradation of complex thermoset composites. With the aim of customizing these enzymes (by protein engineering) and adapt them to industrial settings, EvoEnzyme started testing their activity in the degradation of soluble model molecules based on the structure of [...]
