Chemistry of Biogenic Resources

We develop biocatalytic hybrid processes (combining biocatalysis with electrochemistry and heterogeneous catalysis) for the conversion of plant biomass into chemical building blocks, biofuels and fine chemicals. Our lab in the CRC focusses on developing and applying ultrahigh throughput methods for the identification and engineering of new enzymes. For this we combine microfluidics with enzyme engineering and synthetic biology.
