CONCEPT & OBJECTIVES
INCITE’s concept & objectives are in line with the SPIRE2030 roadmap. Its success will rely on the effective industrial implementation of intensified enzymatic process technologies in the commodity and specialty chemicals industry in Europe.
The core technologies that will be investigated in INCITE are enzymatic conversion, flow chemistry, photoreaction and membrane separation. These technologies are of vital importance for the competitiveness and economic growth of Europe’s chemical industry. Their selectivity, versatility, modularity and adaptability form the foundation for the process intensification that is targeted and will be showcased in 2 different process trains.
The expected overall impacts of the INCITE project is the successful widening of the industrial implementation of enzymatic processes technologies in the commodity, fine and specialty chemical industry in Europe.
To achieve that ambition, INCITE will:
Demonstrate the flexibility, simplicity and modularity of the proposed solutions
Increase productivity, yield and product purity
Reduce downstream processing efforts
Reduce energy requirements and environmental impacts
Increase process safety
Train the current and future generation of employees
