Offer Description

Duration:12 months-Remuneration:€ 19.367,00(gross salary)-Research project:"In the last decades the production of textiles, especially for clothing, is exponentially in-creasing, mostly due to globalization. The end-life of such material is landfilling that, to-gether with soil pollution, represent a global warming challenge due to the production of gases. Blended materials, like cotton-polyester, wool-polyester and cotton-wool, represent a challenge in terms of separation and recycling.
In this research project, blended polyester fibers will be treated with a mixture of com-mercial proteases and cellulases, and engineered PET-hydrolyzing enzymes to obtain amino acids, glucose and terephtalic acid, that will be converted by engineered E. coli strains into important precursors for the synthesis of high-value products. This innovative approach for facing the environmental accumulation of textile wastes offers a new end-of-life option for post-consumers blended polyester (...)
