Kick-off event @ ACHEMA 2018

“To study organisms able to survive under extreme conditions is my passion”, explained Prof. Dr. Bettina Siebers (University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany), coordinator of the project “HOTSOLUTE”. Some bacterial and archaeal species, called thermophiles, sustain themselves in very hot (Temp. 75-80 ° C) and acidic (pH 2-4) environments. The main goal of HOTSOLUTE is to develop applications of thermophilic enzyme cascades and microorganisms for the industrial production of small molecule extremolytes, which have both medical and healthcare applications.
