During a conclave in Straubing, Bavarian Minister of Economic Affairs and Deputy Prime Minister Hubert Aiwanger visited the port of Straubing-Sand and our laboratories to see for himself the solutions to the challenges of climate change and a changing raw material base.

Together with MdL and chairman of the Budgets Committee in the state parliament, Josef Zellmeier and the other visitors, it was agreed that optimal conditions are necessary especially for companies in the region of renewable raw materials. Straubing’s Lord Mayor and ZVH Association Chairman Markus Pannermayr explained the planned expansion of the BioCubator with new laboratories and offices.

In the CASCAT labs we presented our approach of chemo-enzymatic reaction cascades for industrial process and were able to show the potential of our portfolio.

Minister of Economic Affairs Aiwanger summed up the visit as follows: “I think that an outstanding development of the Straubing research landscape is happening here and that a real lighthouse of the bioeconomy is emerging here”. We can only agree with this assessment and thank for the visit.

For the first time the combined chemical industry met on a bunch of selected Start-ups dealing with sustainable chemistry and biotechnology. In a side event of the international conference „Sustainable Chemistry 2015: the way forward“ in Berlin selected start-ups had the possibility to convince the established companies by their approach and spirit of innovation in a pitching session. Organized and preselected by the berlin start-up DexLeChem GmbH we also had the chance to participate. At this point, many thanks to the whole team of DexLeChem! From the CASCAT point of view the event was a full success and the pitch given by André lead to several real interesting discussions. This is one step further towards the sustainable production of chemicals.
