Centre for Environmental Biotechnology
This project will explore the use of biological processes as low carbon alternatives to products and industrial manufacturing processes.
Based at Bangor University, the project will research unique enzymes and how they can transform into products that have less impact on the environment than current materials and industrial chemicals. This will support uptake of lower impact manufacturing technologies by businesses and work towards decarbonisation.
Ambition North Wales is working with lead sponsor, Bangor University to develop this project.
