Emerging Microbial Technologies for Next Generation Biochemical Production
Microbes have for centuries been applied as ‘workhorses’ for food and chemical production, and have in past decennia gained increasing attention for their potential applications in the circular economy. Microbes are highly versatile biocatalysts and can make use of a wide range of substrates for their growth, including electricity, industrial off gases and wastewater. Applying these microbes do drive our next generation chemical production processes allows for the simultaneous reduction of our environmental footprint and the creation of circular economy.
At the EMT-conference, we come together to keep discovering the possibilities for working together with nature’s tremendous realm of diversity and using mankind’s smart engineering tricks to make the world a better, cleaner and more sustainable place. We aim to bring together young and excited scientists and entrepreneurs at EMT to share a day full of new insights into the ways we can understand and use different types of microorganisms and cultivation strategies in combating some of our most pressing societal issues: depletion of fossil resources and climate change. We hope to provide a setting in which new, fruitful collaborations can spring and where people can leave full of inspiration and ideas. We believe that collaborations between industry, both well-established companies and/or new start-ups, and academia are the ones that will advance our field and really make a difference towards a carbon-neutral society.
