Proyecto BIOACT Acetoina

Proyecto Optimización y Escalado de Proceso Biotecnológico de Síntesis de Acetoína (BIOACT)

  • Bilbao, 22 de Julio 2020. Biokemik comunica que está trabajando en el Proyecto “BIOACT” para la optimización y escalado de proceso biotecnológico de síntesis de Acetoína.

OBJETIVO

  • Optimización del proceso biotecnológico de síntesis de acetoína natural por fermentación a partir de materias primas renovables, abundantes, baratas y que no compiten con la cadena alimentaria y su escalado a fermentadores de 1000L incluyendo también los procesos de downstream involucrados.

INNOVACCIONES

  • Fermentación con la bacteria, lactis, segura, no patógena, RG1 (grupo de riesgo biológico 1, el menor posible), GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe), y grado alimentario.
  • Versatilidad de uso de fuente de carbono de cepa de lactis que puede utilizar, además de la glucosa de la celulosa, los principales monosacáridos derivados de la hemicelulosa, como la xilosa, la manosa, la galactosa y la arabinosa.
  • Presenta una altísima selectividad hacia el enantiómero que demanda el mercado R-acetoína, (>96%) frente a las mezclas racémicas obtenidas en los métodos de síntesis química y en otros procesos fermentativos.
  • Know-how para aislar y purificar la acetoína del caldo de fermentación.

DURACIÓN

  • Abril 2020-Diciembre 2021

INFORMACION

  • Proyecto financiado por el Programa de Ayudas de Apoyo a la I+D Empresarial – Hazitek 2020
  • Proyecto ZL-2020/0053 BIOACT
  • Actuación cofinanciada por el Gobierno Vasco y la Unión Europea a través del Fondo Europeo de Desarrollo Regional 2014-2020 (FEDER)
