Biocatalysts (by use of enzymes or whole cells) can alternatively be used in comparison to conventional chemical processes to catalyze any chemical reaction or to obtain any product of interest in the industry. Natural enzymes derived from animal, plant and bacterial sources can be developed using protein engineering techniques to form enzymes with the desired properties due to limited substrate and coenzyme specificity and kinetic problems in reactions. In addition, biocatalysts appear as a Key Enabling Technology in eliminating many difficulties on the way to a sustainable and energy efficient economy. The discovery of new biocatalysts is important to accelerate the development of a large number of innovative biocatalytic processes in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, creating value from academic results.
The aim of this congress is to provide an overview of the discovery of new enzymes, engineering approaches to enzymes (including new assays), and new enzyme applications. In addition, this congress aims to create an atmosphere where the interdisciplinary scientific results necessary for the development of next generation biocatalytic synthesis of valuable chemical products can be shared.
