Therefore, in seek for alternative and renewable sources, bacterial fermentation has become into focus in several chemical production areas. The offered invention provides such a source for nylon production and related composites.
The production of 5AVA has been tested in a laboratory scale. Up-scaling for industrial usage in terms of fermentation conditions needs to be established.
On behalf of the University of Bielefeld, PROvendis offers access to rights for commercial use as well as the opportunity for further co-development. In case of interest we will be pleased to inform you about the patent status.
