Cell Factory Research Team
RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science
(Team Leader: Akihiko Kondo)
Cost reduction of raw materials and processes is needed in order to use biomass as an alternative to fossil resources. Our team aims to integrating conventional processes, which are typically complicated and costly into a bio-process that is innovative, consistent, less costly and energy-saving. This will be achieved by optimizing, in an integrated manner, a plant's capacity to produce and degrade cellulose and the process of microorganisms' degrading and synthesizing biomass.
