Focal topic Biotech for Chemistry #BioForChem

[Translate to en:] Biotech for Chemistry

Biotechnology or chemistry? For the longest time this was a question of principle when it came to producing active pharmaceutical ingredients, polymers or fuel. Mineral oil is cheaper, but microbial pathways are more specific. Renewable ingredients make for a better carbon footprint but the quality isn’t as consistent as that of fossils.
The times of either/or they are a-changing as in the bioeconomy more and more processes now use the best of both worlds. Anything goes if it is technically feasible.
“Biotech for Chemistry” covers the path from gene to process to product and focuses on the growing integration of chemical and biotechnological processes. 

More than 150 exhibitors have assigned themselves to the focal topicHave a look!
