In our publication “A Prospective Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of Monomer Synthesis: Comparison of Biocatalytic and Oxidative Chemistry” out partners University of Maastrict and DTU have analysed our biochemical synthesis of lactones obtained by Baeyer–Villiger oxidation and compared this to more traditional chemical methods.
This allowed us to quantify the environmental impact of our products taking into account its entire life cycle as per ISO 14044:2006.
