Industrial Biotechnology and Biorefining
Module Delivered at CPI, Wilton
Strengthen your knowledge and learn how to improve your biocatalytic processes
31 October - 2 November 2012
This unique module will introduce options for integrating biocatalysis into chemical manufacturing processes, and also explore methodologies in synthetic biology for biocatalyst design.
In this module a series of lectures, problem solving case studies, and a discussion workshop will provide close interaction with key academic and industrial speakers, enabling you to:
- Strengthen your knowledge in biocatalysis, and whole biotransformation processes, from fermentation to product.
- Understand the available chemistries in biocatalysis, and their use in industrial applications.
- Evaluate biological engineering and reaction engineering options.
- Explore microscale experimentation to improve your large scale biocatalytic process development.
Who should attend?
This course is designed for all those involved in the development of industrial biotechnology including:
- Process Engineers
- Biocatalyst developers and biologists
- Research Managers and Consultants
