How To Biodesign #28 Break down fibers with enzymes

About this event

By using enzymes, many polluting catalytic processes can be replaced. How can cell technology be used to make new materials? Enzymes are very expensive although they are produced by nature itself: the mycelium of mushrooms contains many active enzymes. Can we use enzymes as one of the building blocks of the future biodesigner: in this meetup we talk about how we can use these beauties and how to avoid high costs researching them.

How to Biodesign series

Climate crisis asks for regenerative design. With the meetup series How to Biodesign, BlueCity Lab provides a platform for and by bioneers (pioneers in biodesign). Together with Emma van der Leest (founder of BlueCity Lab, biodesigner and writer of the book Form Follows Organism) and various other hosts we explore the opportunities from a systemic approach to raw material flows, making smart use of the latest knowledge and expertise about circular design, but also from biotechnology and biochemistry.

The monthly meetups facilitate interaction between bioneers who are already working and those who want to get started with biodesign and biofabrication, provide a platform for sharing stories and experiences and actively share knowledge, know-how and insights from the meetups to a broader audience.
