Kick-off meeting of the WoodZymes European project June 2018

The Kick-off meeting of the WoodZymes European project, a Research & Innovation Action of the H2020 « Bio-Based Industries” Joint Undertaking coordinated by CIB, CSIC has been held on the 14th and 15th of June 2018 in Madrid.

The project goal is to develop tailor-made enzymes able to work under the extreme operation conditions of pH and temperature required by the wood-processing industries to remove or modify hemicelluloses and recalcitrant lignin protecting cellulose in the plant cell wall. This will enable selective valorisation of currently underutilised biomass fractions to provide high-value bio-equivalents of petroleum-derived chemical building blocks.
