EU Research Project Nano3Bio sums up:
Promis­ing achieve­ments for win­ning future raw mate­ri­als

Since fos­sil raw mate­ri­als are rapid­ly run­ning out, their sub­sti­tu­tion by renew­able resources is becom­ing increas­ing­ly impor­tant. In this process, the bio­log­i­cal pro­duc­tion of raw mate­ri­als will have to play a lead­ing role. The inter­na­tion­al project Nano3Bio, includ­ing ARTES Biotech­nol­o­gy has con­tributed to mas­ter this chal­lenge. Nano3Bio’s main goal was the biotech­no­log­i­cal pro­duc­tion of so-called chi­tosans, which can be used as raw mate­ri­als for med­i­cine, agri­cul­ture, cos­met­ics and oth­er appli­ca­tion fields. The Euro­pean Com­mis­sion sup­port­ed the research project with almost nine mil­lion Euros over the past four years. Recent­ly, the con­sor­tium held its final con­fer­ence ‘The Future of Chi­tosans’ in Hyder­abad, India.
“We’re proud of Nano3Bio’s out­comes. In impor­tant fields, the con­sor­tium achieved or pre­pared break­throughs from basic research to biotech­no­log­i­cal appli­ca­tions”, says Pro­fes­sor Dr. Bruno Moer­schbach­er, biol­o­gist at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Mün­ster and coor­di­na­tor of the project.
