Sustainable Processing

In recent decades, the focus of the chemical industry has turned increasingly towards the implementation of greener and more sustainable processes to produce both bulk chemicals and also chiral molecules for a variety of applications.

For chemical production it's vital that biocatalysts are able to generate products at ton scale, making recyclability a key factor alongside selectivity and high reaction turnover. Examples of large-scale industrial processes employing immobilized enzymes (Lipase CalB) are the production of:

  • Chiral amines
  • Acrylates and organosilicone esters or amides
  • Herbicides
  • Myristyl myristate (for cosmetic products)
  • L-amino acids
