Developing a glycosylation platform technology
to an industrial level.
A radically new value chain for the utilisation of surplus sucrose from sugar beet biomass in the EU will be developed.
The new value chain roots in a novel integrated
biocatalytic production technology.

Overview

CARBAFIN IS

CARBAFIN IS

a collaborative research project, which started in January 2018 and will last until December 2021. It is co-financed by the European Union with a funding of 5.3 million Euros. The EU-consortium consists of eight members coming from five different countries.

CARBAFIN WILL establish

CARBAFIN WILL establish

a new value chain for utilization of surplus sugar beet biomass in the EU by converting glucose and fructose separately into value-added products.
