The industry of dyestuff responds to coloring needs of a wide range of end-use industries, ranging from textile up to construction. In this context research and development activities focused on new technological solutions for low-impact dye synthesis and streamlining manufacturing operations are strategies to be adopted to improve energy efficiency in this sector. Bio-synthetic pathway for dyestuff production represents a high-tech approach that exploits the ability and efficiency of enzymes to catalyse the formation of new dyes.

Abstract

The industry of dyestuff responds to coloring needs of a wide range of end-use industries, ranging from textile up to construction. In this context research and development activities focused on new technological solutions for low-impact dye synthesis and streamlining manufacturing operations are strategies to be adopted to improve energy efficiency in this sector. Bio-synthetic pathway for dyestuff production represents a high-tech approach that exploits the ability and efficiency of enzymes to catalyse the formation of new dyes. In this study we present the preliminary results of the cradle-to-gate life cycle analysis performed on the biosynthetic production of dyestuff to highlight the potential energy and environmental benefits achievable through the substitution of classical chemical process with enzymatic ones.
