Project duration: 2012-2019
The Cluster of Excellence “Tailor-made fuels from biomass" (TMFB) aims at the development of a sustainable and economical design process for biomass-derived fuels. Within this project, ecotoxicological bioassays are integrated in the biofuel development as a “Green Toxicology" approach. It proposes the application of predictive toxicology as part of the sustainable development and production of less harmful chemicals, pharmaceuticals or other products. The basic idea of “Green Toxicology" is the identification of opportunities to design molecules with reduced environmental and human health hazards and, thus, to minimise the intrinsic toxicity of new products.
