ARAID researchers learn about the power of enzymes in the industry of the future thanks to BIZENTE

  During the month of October 2022, BIZENTE held a scientific workshop with the Aragonese Foundation for Research and Development (ARAID). The main objective of the event was to present the BIZENTE project to a specialised audience such as the different principal investigators of the ARAID programme and to promote circular economy projects with a [...]

Chemical modifications to resins in order to ease the targeted biodegradation process

  Unlike thermoplastic for which effective recycling options do exist, thermoset composites cannot be melted because they contain, in their structure, crosslinked polymer networks based on irreversible chemical bonds. Therefore, currently most of the thermoset composites waste are not properly recycled and they are either incinerated or diverted to landfill. Industrial needs for high performance [...]

The BIZENTE worm at the European Researchers’ Night 2022

  The University of Cadiz and the BIZENTE project are taking part in the European Researchers' Night 2022, which was held in Cadiz on 30 September. This scientific dissemination event, which takes place in the streets and squares of 400 European cities, is focused on showing citizens the work done by scientists. The workshop, conducted [...]

The potential of lignolytic enzymes for oxidative polymer degradation.

At Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands) we coordinate the work on the scientific basics of the envisioned enzymatic polymer degradation. Inspired by nature’s solutions to degrade recalcitrant lignin, the research group investigates so-called peroxygenases to degrade non-natural polymers for which nature has not developed degradation strategies (yet). Natural enzymes and human-engineered enzymes are investigated [...]

Bizente Technology, transferred to stakeholders at ESOF 2022

  The Bizente project consortium is having quite a busy summer, participating in various international conferences and workshops. In July, for example, the strategic lines of Bizente were presented by Evoenzyme at the workshop "A sustainable future with sustainable plastics", organised by the project coordinator, Aitiip Centro Tecnológico. In addition to the technical presentation, in [...]

Engineering composite degrading enzymes by Directed Evolution

The role of EvoEnzyme in BIZENTE is to engineer the most promising composite degrading enzymes by Directed Evolution. During the last months we have been developing high-throughput screening assays to detect activity on model molecules from the resins (epoxy, vinyl-ester and polyester). These assays have allowed us to explore libraries in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and to [...]

Cured thermoset materials could finally be 100% chemically recycled

The objective of BIZENTE project (https://specificpolymers.com/bizente/) is to develop multi-step degradation process to degrade thermoset materials (cured reference resins used) at their end-of-life. To do so, BIZENTE partners are working in parallel in order to develop specific enzymes custom designed on the basis of reference resin and, on the other hand, achieve chemical modification of [...]

Interim report on exploitable results and IPR management

A Key Exploitable Result (KER) is an identified main interesting result which has been selected and prioritized due to its high potential to be "exploited". The objective of the Interim report on exploitable results and IPR management is to identify BIZENTE background, to determine the ownership of project’s results and to evaluate the best procedure [...]
