Using green hydrogen as a cheap clean energy soruce as an alternative for carbon based fuels reduces carbon dioxide emissions and contibutes to reduce global warming.  Hydrogenases are attractive biocatalysts for the production and utilisation of hydrogen. We aim to produce green hydrogen from biomass like sugars using  hydrogenases. Furhtermore, we employ hydrogeasnes to fuel  hydrogen driven synthesis of fine cheimcals

Green hydrogen will be employed to drive the production of lactams derivatives in micro disks. In our part of the project, multi-enzymatic cascades are to be de-signed and optimized to produce lactams derivatives from renewable materials in aerobic and anaerobic setups. The established cascades will be integrated into an electrochemical setup to create a plat-form for the H2-driven production of lactams derivatives in micro disks
