Reaction cascades for the production of biopolymers from waste material streams

The project builds on the previous project RECICL, in which we demonstrated a reaction cascade from biomass waste to valuable materials. In the follow-up project BROWSE we want to increase the space-time yield of the entire reaction cascade from waste to industrial products and at the same time demonstrate the scalability of the process. To this end, we will scale up the microbial electrolysis cell to up to 100 L, develop a membrane biofilm reactor for gas fermentation, and target the production strain to the biofilm production process. The fermentation end product 2,3-butanediol will be used directly for the synthesis of a polyester.
