    Beijing Key Laboratory of Bioprocess was officially established based on Beijing University of Chemical Technology in 2001 with the approval of the Beijing Municipal Education Commission and the Science and Technology Commission. The overall positioning of the Laboratory is keeping biorefinery as the central task, taking advantage of biological catalysis and conversion technologies to realise the high-value transformation of biomass

    resources and to prepare bio-based chemicals, bioenergy and biomaterials. The Laboratory focuses on the fundamental scientific issues during the application of industrial bioprocesses, the development and industrial scale-up of the new technologies. The exploration of a series of biorefinery technologies with independent intellectual property rights and their further industrialisations are emerging subjects.

    Main tasks within MIX-UP

    BUCT is work package leader of WP4 “Mixed microbial plastic degradation” and is supported in these activities by RWTH. Additionally, BUCT is involved in WP2 and

    contributes to the identification of PE/PS-degrading microbes and enzymes.

    Prof. Tianwei Tan is an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering. He graduated from the Department of Chemical Engineering of Tsinghua University in 1986 and received his PhD from Tsinghua University in 1993. He is currently a professor and president of Beijing University of Chemical Technology, chairman of the China Renewable Energy Society and vice chairman of the China Chemical Industry Society. His scientific focus is on the field of biorefinery, biomaterials and bioenergy. He is mainly engaged in the biological chemical industry, conducted a lot of research on lipase and enzyme-catalysed synthetic chemicals, realised the production of lipase for organic synthesis and the application of enzyme as industrial catalysis. Further, he established a new method of fermentation up-scaling based on the control of marker metabolites, and used for industrial production of yeast fermentation products. He developed a novel industrial process of comprehensive utilisation of fermentation waste mycelium. He has obtained more than 40 national and international patents and published more than 300 SCI papers. As the first contributor, Prof Tianwei Tan won two national technology invention awards, two provincial and ministerial science and technology progress awards, four Liang Heli science and technology innovation awards, Tan Jiayu life science awards, and Asian Young Biotechnology Outstanding Contribution Awards (YABEC award).
