New open position!

We have a new open position in our institute. The research will be focused on the use of the red macroalgae Palmaria palmata as source of valuable natural pigments: phycobiliproteins. During this project, enzymatic processes will be developed and optimized to achieve the highest phycobiliproteins extraction yields.

Searching for the perfect plasticizer

Project partners from the Technical University of Hamburg, the University of Bielefeld and the chemical company BASF are working on bio-based solutions for sustainable, bio-based plastics as an alternative to petrochemical products. They collaborate in a project called “Bio-Plasticizer” to lay the foundations for further development.
