  "description": "<p>BioRECO<sub>2</sub>VER aims to demonstrate the technical feasibility of more energy efficient and sustainable non-photosynthetic biotechnological processes for the capture and conversion of CO<sub>2 </sub>from industrial point sources like refineries and cement production plants into valuable platform chemicals, i.e. isobutene and lactate.</p>\n\n<p>To overcome several of the existing technical and economic barriers for CO<sub>2</sub> conversion by industrial biotechnology, BioRECO<sub>2</sub>VER will focus on minimizing gas pre-treatment costs, maximizing gas transfer in bioreactors, preventing product inhibition, minimizing product recovery costs, reducing footprint and improving scalability.</p>\n\n<p>To this end, a hybrid enzymatic process will be investigated for CO<sub>2 </sub>capture from industrial point sources and conversion of captured CO<sub>2</sub> into the targeted end-products will be realized through three different proprietary microbial platforms which are representative of a much wider range of products and applications. Bioprocess development and optimization will occur along two lines: fermentation and bio-electrochemical systems.</p>",
