Gregory Stephanopoulos wins Novozymes Award for Excellence in Biochemical and Chemical Engineering

At an official ceremony held at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability at the Technical University of Denmark, Prof. Gregory Stephanopoulos received the Novozymes Award for Excellence in Biochemical and Chemical Engineering. The award goes to a distinguished chemical or biochemical engineer and includes a monetary prize of 100,000 Danish Kroner.

Stephanopoulos is presently directing a research group of approximately 25 researchers who mostly work on applications of metabolic engineering for the production of fuels and chemicals.

“It is a new type of organic chemistry and I would say that the big advantage of biological processes is that they have high specificity. When it comes to producing commodity chemicals it becomes harder to compete with the chemical industry because they produce them in very large volume and at very low prices,” says Gregory Stephanopoulos.
