About us

BIOINTENSE is a single stage knowledge based bio economy (KBBE) collaborative project which started on the 1st of August 2012. It is EC-funded through the 7th Framework Cooperation Programme that has the strategic objective of supporting research activities to gain or consolidate leadership in key scientific and technology areas and to encourage international competitiveness whilst promoting research that supports EU policies.

The consortium is led by Professor John M. Woodley from the PROCESS group at the Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). The manager is Associate Professor Ulrich Krühne.

The main objectives in BIOINTENSE are to increase biocatalyst productivity and process intensity.This will result in economically feasible processes by integration and intensification and also shorten the development times by developing optimized tools and protocols that can be widely applicable in industry. More than this, the lack of fundamental understanding on the interactions between reaction, biocatalyst and process characteristics will be addressed to minimize the uncertainties with respect to the cost of future biocatalytic processes. BIOINTENSE will also increase understanding about the factors contributing to the total cost and environmental impact.
