Fumaric Acid Production for Polymer Applications


  • Development of effcient fermentative processes for the production of fumaric acid from renewable feedstocks

  • Process optimization for the different substrates and new enzymes

  • Evaluation of process sustainability and the cost considerations through Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Life Cycle Costing (LCC)

  • Development of a multi-objective optimization tool that supports the cost model, environmental impact assessment and production of fumaric acid

Innovative Aspects

  • Evaluating environmental impacts and costs of bio-based fumaric acid through an integrated approach by using an optimization tool

  • Apple pomace and orange peel using as feedstocks for fumaric acid production

  • New enzymes for hydrolysis processes

  • Providing a support decision system for full scale bio-based production


  • Consideration of two process variants; separate hydrolysis and fermentation (SHF) as well as simultaneous saccharification and fermentation (SSF)

  • Production processes are evaluated on economic feasibility and environmental impacts through LCA and LCC supported by EPESUS

  • Additional software or tools are used to develop multi objective optimization tool


  • Innovative technologies transferring through the FAPA project

  • Improvement of EPESUS as a strong national product that has the ability LCA, LCC and optimization through the internet on international platform
