Project: Environmentally friendly water treatment : enzymatic control of biofouling.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-94 – 31-DEC-99
- A screening for novel enzymes, which degrade extra-cellular polysaccharides (EPS), will be performed. Especially the enzymatic hydrolysis of biofilms will be studied with the novel enzymes and with enzymes derived from microbial strains mentioned inthe literature and patents in this respect. Physiological, genetical and proces-technological fermentationparameters will be studied in view of obtaining highly active and stable enzyme preparations to be used for enzymatic biofilm removal.
