Carolina Fernández and Diego Maureira, PhD students from Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso in Chile are now seconded in Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona until July 2021. Their work will focus different aspects comprised in WP1, targeting CO2 fixation and conversion into added value products, which will be addressed in collaboration with the Bioprocess Engineering and Applied Biocatalysis Research Group of the Department of Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering of the UAB.

Specifically, Diego Maureira will perform activities focused on the production and purification of formate dehydrogenase (FDH), functionalization of electrodes and FDH immobilization on electrodes for CO2 fixation, while Carolina will focus her efforts on the characterization and immobilization of enzymes for the regeneration of enzymatic cofactor to be used in CO2 transformation.
