Application of Plant Cells in White Biotechnology: Transfer of innovative methods for the application of plant cells in food, wood, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries by an interdisciplinary group of junior scientists
project planned for three years will be realized in close,
interdisciplinary collaboration with the Institutes of Food
Technology and Bioprocess Engineering, Wood and Paper
Technology and Botany of the TU Dresden. The chair of
Environmental Management and Accounting researches hurdles for
the industrial application of the technique and works on their
ecological and economic assessment.
Although white biotechnology application with plant cells has considerable advantages, the industrial application is still underachieved. The project's objective is to identify the hurdles and to present possible solutions.
ECOLOGICAL AND ECONOMICAL ASSESSMENT
The technique's profitability and environmental effect will be researched on one exemplary technique of white biotechnology. For this reason the production process will be modelized and analysed with classic tools of business studies and environmental performance concepts, with the objective to identify significant variables for an ecological and economical improvement.
further objective is to create a competent, highly motivated
group of young scientists.
