CEPI - Confederation of European Paper Industries
The Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI) is a Brussels-based non-profit making organisation regrouping the European pulp and paper industry and championing this industry’s achievements and the benefits of its products. Its mission is to promote the member’s business sector by taking specific actions notably, by monitoring and analyzing activities and initiatives in the areas of industry, environment, energy, forestry, recycling, fiscal policies and competitiveness in general. Through CEPI, the paper industry increases its visibility and acts on emerging issues, making expert and constructive contributions on behalf of the industry.

Cefic - The European Chemical Industry Council
Cefic is the voice of 29,000 large, medium and small chemical companies in Europe, which provide 1.3 million jobs and account for one third of world chemicals production. Cefic represents its members and interacts daily on their behalf with international and EU institutions, non-governmental organizations, the international media and other stakeholders.
The European Chemical Industry is a key contributor to the sustainable development of our society, ideally equipped to providing solutions, such as climate change.

Industrial use of enzymes
catalyze a huge amount of chemical reactions in living organisms, which take place under mild conditions compatible with life, and with exquisite substrate specificity, which permits the simultaneous assemblage of the extraordinarily complex catabolic and anabolic routes that characterize life. Nowadays, the availability of genetic engineering
tools permits large-scale production of enzymes and other proteins at low cost by isolating (or synthesizing) the corresponding genes (or cDNA) and introducing them into adequate expression hosts (often filamentous fungi) after their cloning in expression vectors. Simultaneously, protein engineering
using rational and non-rational designs permits to adapt these enzymes to the industrial application conditions, and to increase their expression yields.
This situation represented a real breakthrough for industrial biotechnology
enabling the production of commercial enzymes at very low costs. The enzymatic biocatalysts obtained are often very competitive and more environmentally-friendly
than the corresponding chemical reagents, at the same time that their substrate specificity permits to obtain specific products (including stereo-specific transformations) that are difficult and/or very expensive to obtain by pure chemical synthesis. In addition to their traditional uses, e.g. in the manufacture of some food products and in diverse microbiological transformations (e.g. fermentation processes), the last decades have seen how enzymes entered different industrial sectors
, such as detergents, food and beverages, textiles, pulp and paper, leather and personal care. Moreover, enzymes have recently started to occupy an important position in the fuel markets, and are slowly entering the market of fine chemicals.
