WoodZymes Final Workshop on 04/11/2021 via ZOOM - Registration is open!

The WoodZymes Final Workshop will take place on November 4th, with participation of related BBI JU projects dealing also with lignocellulose valorisation. The workshop will be broadcasted via ZOOM (see registration link below).

Join us in this final event to know WoodZymes main achievements on the development and application of extremophilic enzymes to valorise underutilised lignin and hemicellulose fractions extracted from kraft pulp mills. Moreover, other BBI JU funded projects such as UNRAVEL and SMARTBOX will present the approach they are following to achieve full exploitation of lignocellulose biomass.

Link for registration:
