Resumen:
Una universidad alemana ofrece una solución de obtención de materiales base para producir nailon y poliamidas mediante fermentación bacteriana y satisfacer la alta demanda de este material, por ejemplo, en la industria química. La tecnología implica una nueva ruta biosintética y produce 5-aminovalerato (5AVA) como material base. Se trata de un material base potencial para producir nailon 5 y una plataforma C5 de síntesis de materiales base para otras poliamidas. La universidad, que ha llevado a cabo las pruebas de laboratorio, busca socios industriales con el fin de establecer acuerdos de licencia y cooperación técnica.

Details

Tittle:
Base material for polyamides - Bacterial production of 5-aminovalerate from cadaverine.
Summary:
A German university offers a solution to gain base materials for the production of nylon and polyamides by bacterial fermentation in order to meet the high demand for this material by e.g. the chemical industry. The invention involves a new biosynthetic route and produces 5-aminovalerate (5AVA) as potential base material. Lab tests have been carried out. Industrial partners are sought for licensing and technical cooperation.
Description:
Natural, especially fossil resources for base material to produce polyamides and related composites are limited. At the same time there is an increasing demand for these products in the chemical industry. Therefore alternatives and renewable sources for the base material are needed. To solve this issue, bacterial fermentation has become a focus in several chemical production areas.

A German university offers an invention that provides such a source for nylon production and related composites:

Here the possible source is fermentation by genetically engineered bacteria. Cadaverine is a biogenic amine that can be produced by corynebacterium glutamicum from the amino acid lysine by heterologous expression of a lysine decarboxylase from Escherichia coli. Overexpression of the patA and patD genes from Escherichia coli in corynebacterium glutamicum enables the latter to further metabolize cadaverine to 5 aminovalerate (5AVA). This is a potential base material for the production of nylon 5 and a C5 platform for the synthesis of base materials for other polyamides.

Industrial licensees are sought. There is also an interest in technical cooperation to up-scale the production for industrial use. Fermentation conditions need to be established.
Advantages and Innovations:
New renewable source for base material for polyamide production
New biosynthetic route
Solution for unmet demand in chemical industry
Stage of Development:
Under development/lab tested
IPs:
Patent(s) applied for but not yet granted
CommeR Statunts Regarding IPR Status:
Patent applied for in Germany.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The university offers access to rights for commercial use to licensees as well as the opportunity for further co-development within technical cooperation in the up-scaling process where fermentation conditions still need to be established for industrial use.

Partners should come from the chemical or biotechnology sector.
