Objetive: The EnXylaScope consortium, coordinated by AITIIP, aims to discover novel enzymes for debranching xylan, optimizing their production systems and using it in a range of potential greener consumer products.
During the lifespan of the project, the consortium will produce three types of enzymatically modified xylan which will be tested for six consumer products. These products will cover the cosmetics, personal care and nutraceuticals sectors.
EnXylaScope debranched xylan will be the answer to the growing demand for greener biobased products. This highly-abundant lignocellulose polymer has outstanding physical and chemical properties which make it suitable for incorporation in an array of consumer products, replacing less-sustainable product components and therefore allowing for greener market options for the consumer.
This project has received funding from the European Union´s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101000831
