Environmental, economic and social impacts
Replacement of fossil-based surfactants and siderophores production with cost-effective and ‘eco-friendly’ microbial production of marine-based compounds • Expected CO2 emissions reduction by 94% compared with existing practices • Fully exploitation of already sampled species to avoid environmental damages from sampling campaigns • Increasing carbon efficiency by ◦ maximizing product titres, yields and productivities using modified micro-organisms ◦ optimizing separation technologies for effective products recovery ◦ using side and waste streams as inputs for fermentation • Technological outcomes are expected to contribute to creation of new jobs by 1-2% in the entire industrial biotechnology value chain
