Project description

CARBOSURF aims to develop new biobased processes and products. Specifically, it targets the fermentative production of different glycolipid biosurfactants with a wide range of application fields, and specialty carbohydrates, i.e. complex human milk oligosaccharides, whith applications as neutraceutical, pharmaceutical and cosmetic ingredients. Sufficient amounts of new products will be produced for application testing, in order to evaluate their market potential.
