Conversion of CO2
by smart autotrophic biorefineries
ConCO2rde is a European innovative training network that brings together a diverse team of chemists, synthetic biologists, enzyme technologists and process engineers. The main objective of this team is to train 11 Early Stage Researchers (ESR) in different research disciplines that together allow the conversion of CO2 by smart autotrophic biorefineries.
The concept is based on autotrophic microorganisms that utilize renewable energy for the accumulation of biomass and, therefore, provide potential sources for future materials of our society. The network of ConCO2rde combines chassis strain development of these autotrophic microorganisms with process engineering in order to bring biotechnological processes to the next level.
