Tim manages the recombinant collagen project – called Vecollan® - comprising the production scale-up as well as the commercialization activities.

“I am convinced that our Vecollan® will be a great success story for Evonik, as it shows not only superior properties in comparison to animal-derived collagen and is more sustainable, but also underlines Evonik´s position as leading company in fermentation and protein development.

By developing a highly pure recombinant collagen at commercially reasonable production costs, Evonik is able to disrupt the market, as for now recombinant proteins are often lacking in purity or production efficiency.”
