FLEXIZYME

Construction of a FLEXIble and adaptable ENZYMatic biotechnological platform for sustainable industrial production of bio-based FAs from side stream materials

With a projected market growth of over €5.54 billion by 2027, fatty amines are essential components in numerous industries, including cosmetic products, detergents, and agriculture. However, traditional methods of fatty amines production suffer from drawbacks, such as high energy consumption, toxic catalysts, and environmental concerns.

FLEXIZYME aims to revolutionise fatty amines production through biotechnological innovation and sustainable practices by pioneering a biotechnological platform that utilises fat- and protein-rich residues as feedstocks. This approach not only mitigates environmental impact, but it also contributes to a circular economy by repurposing waste materials.

One of the key solutions proposed by FLEXIZYME is the use of advanced enzymes, leveraging cutting-edge bioinformatic tools and artificial intelligence to optimise processes. This approach offers advantages over traditional methods, such as higher selectivity, milder reaction conditions, and reduced energy consumption, and it also enables enzymes to be derived from renewable sources and tailored for specific reactions, thereby enhancing overall efficiency and sustainability.

Our Role

COMMUNICATION,  DISSEMINATION AND EXPLOITATION
ENCO is the leader of the Communication, Dissemination & Exploitation activities in WP8. It will work to:

  • To provide stakeholders at European and international levels with the information concerning FLEXIZYME activities, events, achievements, knowledge and results
  • To generate awareness about the project amongst the different target audiences
  • To foster and support the joint organisation of a 2 networking (1) physical and (1) virtual events to stimulate knowledge interchange amongst key players
  • To produce efficient, effective and sophisticated dissemination materials, creating corporate identity and fulfilling expectations of the players involved
  • To lay the groundwork for the exploitation of the project results, for the scaling up of FLEXYZYME solutions
