We attended the IX National Congress of Industrial Microbiology and Microbial Biotechnology (CMIBM’24), where our colleague, Mikel Dolz Ruiz, presented a lecture in relation to the MADRID VUELA SOSTENIBLE project. It provided an opportunity to showcase EvoEnzyme’s work in protein engineering and enzyme selection for processing biomass residues to produce sustainable aviation biofuels (SAF). Specifically, EvoEnzyme will develop optimized laccase and cellulase enzymes for treating lignocellulosic material to obtain bioethanol for SAF production.

It was a pleasure to be part of this project funded by the Community of Madrid and led by Repsol, where EvoEnzyme is a participating partner in the Innovation HUB consortium alongside IMDEA Energía and ARIEMA Energía y Medioambiente.

Thanks to the Spanish Society of Microbiology – Sociedad Española de Microbiologia- and its Specialized Group in Industrial Microbiology and Microbial Biotechnology, the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), Universidad Complutense de Madrid, and the Madrid City Council- Ayuntamiento de Madrid for organizing this interesting event. It provided avaluable opportunity to discuss various sustainable biotechnology initiatives with the other attendees.
