Enzyme Development for Norwegian Biomass (NorZymeD):
Mining Norwegian Biodiversity for Seizing Norwegian Opportunities in the
The main objective of the NorZymeD
project is to develop competitive enzyme technology for processing of Norwegian
biomass to increase value-creation in the Norwegian bio-based
In addition, the project aims to:
1. Establish a
national developmental pipeline for the identification, optimization and
production of industrially useful enzymes.
2. Optimization of technology for
stabilization and immobilization of enzymes in flow reactors.
enzymes for processing of lignocellulosic biomass, with focus on processes in
the Borregaard biorefinery.
4. Develop enzymes and enzymatic processes for
biorefining of marine biomass, with focus on operations at Marine
5. Identify novel opportunities (enzymes and biorefining
processes) and establish links with other projects, e.g. in the chitin /
6. Identifying and dealing with ethical, social and legal
issues by building capacity on Ethical, Legal and Social Aspects (ELSA)
throughout the consortium.
7. Establish a national arena for industrial
biocatalysis and biorefining.
FNI will contribute to building ELSA
capacity (aim 6), with focus on legal aspects.
