Enzymes for Industrial Applications

Ulf Menyes, Enzymicals

"An open discussion of scientists from the field of biocatalysis, users in organic synthesis and technologists from the plant engineering is essential to overcome language barriers and technical challenges. Economic and simultaneously sustainable synthesis processes will be mixed chemical and biocatalytic processes over a period of the next 20 years and more."
