ARTES was part of a successful international consortium

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.
