Vitamin B2-Produktion: nachhaltig und wirtschaftlich dank neuer Technologien

Abstract

Among chemicals, vitamin B2 is one of the best examples to show the development from early strain improvement via classical mutagenesis to modern metabolic engineering approaches. Within less than
15 years, a complete shift from chemical to exclusive biotechnological production was achieved resulting in a more sustainable and cost-efficient process. Optimization potential is still seen via rational
strain improvement as well as bioprocess engineering.
