The innovative solution

 BIOCORIN project will identify microorganisms most suitable to counteract the fouling and MIC threats in civil infrastructures affected by these phenomena under different types of conditions. Instead of purifying the bioactive compounds from organisms or synthesize the chemical compounds, the technology will use latent microorganisms that directly act secreting the required antifouling or anti-MIC compound when needed, once this kind of corrosion starts. Optimum and homogenous reaction conditions will be studied for the production of BIOCORIN antifouling compounds and to design an adequate industrial fermentation process. A consistent product quality be will be aimed by minimizing microbial stress exposure and enhancing metabolic accuracy of the process. Suitable strategies for processes and facilities will be designed by a comprehensive and detailed process characterization, identificating the most relevant process parameters that influence both product yield and quality and establishing them as scale-up parameters to be kept constant as far as possible.
