microorganisms with unique, selective binding- and adsorption characteristics on selected surfaces.
Within the co-operation the partners pursue the joint objective of identifying and developing suitable microorganisms, which, by using their adsorption properties, will specifically introduce novel physical properties to the selected surfaces.
It is the goal of the partners to integrate the selected microorganisms into an industrial-scale. BRAIN will contribute its expertise in biotechnology, microbiology and the development of pilot processes, while Evonik shall be responsible for the technical implementation and marketing of the products. Financial terms of the collaboration or more detailed technical information are not disclosed.
