Dr. Margie Borra-Garske

"Using Codexis protein engineering technology, five enzymes were engineered towards a highly efficient cascade reaction to generate a small-molecule drug from simple building blocks. Enzymes were engineered to work on non-native substrates, with high activity, stability, and stereoselectivity, under industrially-relevant process conditions."

Dr. Subhash Pithani, Senior Research Scientist, AstraZeneca, Gothenburg/Sweden

"Recycling of Novozyme was studied using Spin Chem® RBR technology for the preparation of a key building block. Various parameters such as type of immobilized enzyme, loading, rate of agitation, temperature and scalability were studied."

Dr. Subhash Pithani
Senior Research Scientist
AstraZeneca, Sweden

Dr. Yamini Satyawali, Managing Director, ChiralVision, The Netherlands

"Membrane assisted process intensification paves the way for the application of  biocatalysis in industrial processes. My talk will include the examples for chiral amines, esters and oligosaccharides synthesis using membrane based approaches."

VITO NV, Belgium

Dr. Rob Schoevaart, Managing Director, ChiralVision, The Netherlands

"Finding the right enzyme takes you half the way. Designing the production process around it and applying immobilization to allow for more extreme conditions, recycling and full removal takes you all the way."

Dr. Rob Schoevaart
Managing Director
ChiralVision, The Netherlands

Dr. Martin Schürmann

"Molecular oxygen and water are excellent reactants to introduce oxyfunctionalities into chemical products or oxidise them further in efficient and safe biocatalytic processes."
