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 [...]

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 [...]

Bizente has been presented in Biotrans 2021: Biocatalytic solutions for the end-of-life of thermoset materials

EvoEnzyme presented Bizente in Biotrans 2021 celebrated in Graz, Austria on 19th to 22nd July, 2021 with the poster "Biocatalytic solutions for the end-of-life of thermoset materials". The poster was elaborated by EvoEnzyme and the [...]

BIZENTE gathers requirements and industrial specifications of composites from a variety of sectors

Due to unique characteristics such as their high strength-to-weight ratio (enabling light-weighting) and long durability, thermoset based composite materials provide significant advantages over conventional materials such as steel or aluminium. This makes them very attractive [...]

BIZENTE shows its enzymatic degradation model in a Spanish workshop on Circular Economy in industry

The BIZENTE project has participated in the face-to-face conference "Digitization, Circular Economy and Talent" jointly organized by the AITIIP technology center and the Aragón Automotive Cluster in Zaragoza (Spain). It was an event in which [...]
