Biotech research centre to open in Jutland  

Two universities join forces to create a new course in biotechnology

According to an article in Erhvervsbladet today, Aalborg University Esbjerg and Syddansk University are joining forces to create a new course in biotechnology. The initiative comes in response to the growing number of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in south west Jutland. One newly formed company in the area is developing techniques to produce the amino acid lysine from agricultural waste.

The new research and development centre for biotechnology will open its doors to the first intake of students this September. Up to 20 students will be enrolled, and the course is expected to attract a number of students from China. The centre's specialist interests include fermentation, filtration, composting and bioreactor technology, biogas production, membrane technology and bio-cleaning.
