Department of Biochemical Engineering
Our excellent international reputation derives from a shared passion to understand how life science discoveries can be converted into commercially viable products on a truly global scale.
Manufacturing sugar results in a by-product called vinasse, that can be converted to biogas leading to a anaerobic digestion (AD) sludge. This sludge is produced in vast quantities and is causing significant environmental issues in Columbia. Dr Frank Baganz has been developing expertise within The Department of Biochemical Engineering at UCL in developing biotransformation processes that have the potential to find a sustainable solution to generating energy from biomass feedstocks.

We at The Department of Biochemical Engineering are very pleased to have Stefanie Frank join the team. Stefanie grew up in Germany and graduated from the Friedrich-Schiller University in Jena. In 2001, she came to the UK to work as a research technician in the group of Prof David Becker (UCL) where she helped to develop a wound-healing drug.
