BMBF project 200%E was granted
On October 1st, the BMBF-funded project 200%E will be started.
The BMBF-funded project 200%E aims to establish a novel value-added chain for the industrial production of food additives based on cellulosic biomass. For this purpose, the disaccharide cellobiose will be converted electrochemically. In order to use of the energy invested in the electrochemical process optimally, the starting material cellobiose will be processed into valuable chemical products at both electrodes simultaneously. Subject of the exploratory phase are the feasibility of the chemical conversion technology, the planning of the process control and optimization as well as the preparation of a first market analysis.
