Prospects of Enzyme Engineering and Biofuels Markets in Russia

October 2010. Despite its roadmap Biotechnology2030 (BioTech 2030), Russia’s interest is rather reduced to engage in renewables. B2Bioworld asked Vladimir Popov, Director of the Russian Academy of Science’s Institute of Biochemistry at Moscow, if official disinterest will continue. Prof. Popov who is the country’s EU liaison person describes plans in enzyme engineering (e.g. biobutanol) and shares his assessment of how Russia might create a market for renewable energy from specific biomass sources. Includes historic photo of Bach Institute's scientists and founders in the 1930s.Reading time: 6 min
