Why a KET?

The use of enzymes and micro-organisms to make bio-based products – the basis of biotechnology – is increasingly gaining importance in a wide range of areas. Its application has improved performance and sustainability in industry for the development of high value products, in sectors as diverse as food, healthcare, textiles and bioenergy. Through the development of better ways of transforming biomass, biotechnology will continue to occupy a significant role on the resolution of the EU goals on competitiveness, climate change and sustainability.
