WP1: Biobased delivery system for enzymes – University of Copenhagen


WP1: Biobased delivery system for enzymes

In WP1 five different approaches for making microcapsules and coatings for delivery of functional enzymes will be employed.


WP1.1: Silica-based materials for encapsulation of enzymes (Ileana A. Pavel, University of Lorraine, France).

  • Enzyme delivery system based on adsorption of enzyme in pre-synthesized mesoporous material.
  • Enzyme delivery system based on solid lipid nanoparticle and mesoporous silica matrix.

WP1.2: Cross-linked hydrogels as delivery systems for enzymes (Yoran Beldengrün, CSIC, Spain)


To demonstrate that cross-linked hydrophilic polymers can be used for the controlled release of active enzymes.

WP1.3: Lipid-based nanostructures for entrapment of enzymes (Maria Valldeperas Badell, Lund University, Sweden)


Develop and prepare non-lamellar lipid aqueous assembly structures that can encapsulate not only enzymes but also microorganisms.

WP1.4: Controlled release vehicles based on functionalised alkylglycosides (Federica Sebastiani, CR Competence AB, Sweden)


Demonstrate that release from vesicles can be triggered by enzymatic or chemical degradation of surfactants incorporated in the lipid bilayer.

WP1.5: Coating for microcapsules in cheese ripening (Surender Kumar Dhayal, Chr. Hansen A/S, Denmark)

  • Design and preparation of responsive coatings that induce flocculation upon enzymatic degradation.
  • Preparation and characterization of lipid or hydrogel capsules using the responsive coating above.
