Cell4Chem is a European research project. Tools and strategies are being developed to produce green chemicals (medium-chain carboxylates) from sustainable resources with the help of microbial communities.
It aims to enhance the power of microbial communities in a sustainable, circular biobased economy. For this purpose, Cell4Chem will engineer bacterial communities to enable the use of lignocellulosic feedstock for the efficient production of specialty chemicals. This will expand the range of substrate for the carboxylate platform. To improve the applicability of microbial communities in future biotechnological processes, Cell4Chem takes a multidisciplinary approach.
