ViRIDi Aurum [
green gold] - Versatile reaction educts for a sustainable chemical industry by production of Biodetergents in
In ViRIDi Aurum, we will develop contributions to a sustainable chemical industry by replacing chemicals that are based on fossil resources by bio-based alternatives. The central product classes in ViRIDi Aurum are biosurfactants and basic chemicals for the production of lubricants and fuels.
Our project comprises strain engineering of Aureobasidium pullulans for the synthesis of novel molecules as well as the development of a fermentation process.
Funding: This project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture in the framework of the Fachagentur Nachwachsende Rohstoffe e.V.
