BTCL has a vastly experienced team in developing technologies to convert biomass to value added products. BTCL team members are among the first few people in the UK who took part in developing the technologies for the conversion of hemicellulosic based sugars into ethanol using thermophilic microorganisms, which grow at high temperatures. The team optimised the process and engineered the thermophilic microorganisms for the production of ethanol in high yields.
The BTCL team is working on valorisation of biomass feedstocks for the production of high value products. BTCL is also providing services to the clients for feedstock hydrolysis, microbial metabolic engineering, developing synthetic biology tools, products and fermentation process optimisation.
