TWB workshop: Bioproduction of high value compounds for cosmetic industry

  • INSA

From synthetic biology to biocatalysis

Biotechnological processes (enzymatic synthesis of biobased chemicals and the fermentative production of biocatalysts or other metabolic products) are becoming core technologies in all industry sectors, energy, materials, foods, pharmacetucials.
Biotechnology in the cosmectics industry can be viewed from different perspectives:

  • development of new cost-effective and environment friendly production processes, as alternatives to chemical processes. Moreover, combining synthetic biology with industrial fermentation technology is used to produce pure active compounds which were traditionally extracted from plant tissues.
  • creation of high performance compounds. For example, biocatalysis can be used to bring additional functionalities to cosmetics compounds, delivering higher value to the industry and superior end-user performance.

SuperBIO Workshop Biosurfactants

  • Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant

Biosurfactants have the potential to be used in a wide variety of applications. Drivers to use biosurfactants are to increase the biobased content of the end-product, to replace current substances which are to be banned from market, or their beneficial activity in the end application.

Participants from companies active in surfactant production, agrochemicals, cleaning and cleaning products, or interested in using biosurfactants.

How SuperBIO can strengthen your BBI proposal

BBI proposals should address issues such as LCA, sustainability, regulatory barriers, business planning, techno-economic, feedstock and market information, IP position, technology beyond lab scale (TRL 4) already from the proposal stage. Addressing these issues in a professional way gives you a clear advantage to winning the bet.

SuperBIO gives SMEs access to these services through six service providers at a 75% funding rate. SMEs or consortia that are preparing a BBI submission can submit an application to the SuperBIO project.
