Approach

  • Genetic Engineering (Golden Gate, CRISPR/Cas9)
  • Quantitative bioprocess development
  • Advanced process analytics
  • Energy for fixation using communal waste 

 

 

Novelty

  • Coupled process of extremophiles and recombinant hosts
  • Use of industrial flue gas streams for CO2 fixation
