At the 4th of March the CSU-business forum took place at the start-up center in Straubing. Speaker of the panel discussion were:

  • Andreas Löffert, managing director Hafen Straubing-Sand
  • Dipl. Biol. André Pick, CASCAT GmbH
  • Markus Pannermayr, mayor of the city of Straubing
  • Herbert Wittl, Strama MPS
  • Prof. Dr. Sieber, TUM Campus

The two-hour symposium was used to discuss the current situation of Straubing in context of the economic situation as a business location. Which tasks have been solved in an exemplary way and where is room for improvement? André represented in that round the Straubing start-up scene and presented the potential of the location and suggested aspect how to support that even more.

The 4th DECHEMA-PRAXISforum “Enzymes for Industrial Applications” offers industry professionals a platform to discuss the latest developments in enzyme technology and biocatalysis. It is the chance to meet solution providers, key customers and users of enzymes and learn about new products, services and process and production technologies.

André was invited to present the CASCAT approach on chemical-enzymatic reaction cascades for industrial applications. In this context there were fruitful discussion on our carbohydrate-based reaction cascades towards industrial products.

With EUR 3.7M for academia and industry INTERfaces intends to pave the way for enzymatic based sustainable production of chemicals. Under the lead of Prof. Selin Kara from Aarhus University Denmark, 21 European industries and universities are teamed up in this project to create natural and sustainable chemical products by mimicking the metabolism of living organisms.

“Successful applied science not only needs to be interdisciplinary but should also be at the interface between ground-breaking research and industrial implementation. Therefore, the strong involvement of three large companies and ten high-tech start-ups is crucial to achieve our goals in this project” is said by the project leader Prof. Selin Kara.

The project will be upscaled in collaboration with the industrial sector. For this, a total of 9 academic institutions and 13 private sector organisations, ranging from high-tech SMEs to large-scale production companies, are taking part in the project from Jan. 2020 – Dec. 2023 on. We are proud to be part of this highly innovative project, and to contribute by our experience and expertise for transferring enzymatic reaction cascades towards industrial applications.

The Consortium:

  • Aarhus University (Selin Kara, coordinator)
  • Graz University of Technology
  • acib GmbH
  • University of Oviedo
  • University of Trieste
  • University of Zaragoza
  • University of Bielefeld
  • KTH Royal Institute of Technology
  • Elettra-Sincrotrone Trieste S.C.p.A.
  • Henkel AG & Co. KGaA
  • EnginZyme AB
  • SpinChem AB
  • ViaZym BV
  • NanoMyP SL
  • BioPox SRL
  • Micronit Microtechnologies BV
  • ÆNEAM Advanced Membrane Technologies SL
