Implementation of a newly discovered metabolic pathway increases the CO2 efficiency of PET-utilizing bacteria
Scientists at the Max Planck Institute in Marburg have developed a more efficient, carbon dioxide-conserving route to upcycle ethylene glycol, a constituent of the plastic PET. They enhanced the metabolism of the bacterium Pseudomonas putida with a novel route taken from marine microbes, ...
Prizewinner from the Max Planck Institute in Marburg, Germany is working on capturing carbon dioxide and converting it into new chemical building blocks using biocatalysts
Merck announced the winner of the 2022 Future Insight Prize in the category of “Energy”. The €1million prize was awarded at the “Curious2022 – Future Insight” scientific conference in Darmstadt, Germany, to Professor Tobias Erb (43), Director at the Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial ...
The secret is an enzyme that “juggles” reaction ingredients
Plants rely on a process called carbon fixation – turning carbon dioxide from the air into carbon-rich biomolecules – for their very existence. That’s the whole point of photosynthesis, and a cornerstone of the vast interlocking system that cycles carbon through plants, animals, microbes and the ...
Inspired by nature: Electro-biocatalytic CO₂ fixing replaces fossil resources
Making important raw materials for fine chemicals out of carbon dioxide really works. As part of the Max Planck collaborative project eBioCO2n, a team of researchers from Fraunhofer IGB have successfully performed a first ever fixation of CO2 via a multi-enzyme enzyme reaction driven by ...
Scientists found a method for the "green" production of the important starting material for the chemical industry
Sometimes potentially useful enzymes are not easy to discover because their biocatalytic capabilities may go beyond their natural and thus known range of action. By recombining a newly discovered enzymatic capability, a research team from the Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology led ...
Scientists reveal the features of efficient carboxylase enzymes
In order to overcome the climate crisis, two measures are required: The reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and removal of CO2 from the earth atmosphere. The latter is the goal of Tobias Erb's research group at the Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology in Marburg. Their ...
