Work Package 4: Production of industrial viable enzymes

In Work Package 4 optimisation methods will be developed for 1 L scale production of feruloyl esterases and glucuronyl esterases, including both of the already known enzymes and new ones selected among those developed in previous work package. Tasks of WP4 aim at enzyme immobilisation on mesoporous material and as cross-linked aggregates (CLEAs) or as carrier-based immobilisates. The structure-function information of selected enzymes will be explored to match the properties of the enzyme with the surface properties of the mesoporous material under the target reaction conditions.
