Project overview

Secondary objectives:

  • A national pipeline for identification, optimization and production of industrially useful enzymes
  • A technology platform for stabilization and immobilization of enzymes
  • Targeted development of enzymes for lignocellulose processing
  • Targeted development of enzymes for processing of marine biomass
  • Identify en develop novel opportunities for enzymatic biomass processing
  • Dealing with ethial, societal and legal issues
  • A national arena for industrial biocatalysis and biorefining


Expected output:


  • Top national competence in fundamental enzymology and enzyme technology
  • Value-added products from lignocellulosic biomass – lignin, polymers, fish feed, chemical building blocks
  • Second generation biofuels
  • Value-added products from marine by-products – peptones, lipids, feed, nucleotides
  • Sustainable, profitable and downscalable bioprocessing options for Norwegian biomass
  • IP on enzymes and enzymatic processes
