Dr. Mahmoud Masri

Mahmoud Masri accomplished his studies in Applied Chemistry at the University of Damascus and received his Master in 2010. He has been working as Quality Assurance Manager for five years. In 2019, he obtained his doctoral degree in biotechnology at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) with a dissertation on the subject “Generation of Microbial Oil via a Process Engineering Approach”. In 2020, Dr. Mahmoud Masri became a group leader of process development and industrial validation at the TUM – Werner Siemens-Chair of Synthetic Biotechnology (WSSB). The focus of his group is to build industry-relevant bioprocesses based on cyclic bioeconomy and biorefinery concepts.

Leitmotif

Waste-free bioprocessing is the foundation stone to building a sustainable bioeconomy.

Activities

Dr. Mahmoud Masri has started actively to build an in silico biomass and energy balance model for an industrial scale of multi-steps bioprocessing that can achieve a zero greenhouse gas emission (GHG). He has already published a couple of scientific papers in high-impact peer-reviewed journals (e.g. “A sustainable, high-performance process for the economic production of waste-free microbial oils that can replace plant-based equivalents” in Energy & Environmental Science, 2019, and “A waste free, microbial oil centered cyclic bio-refinery approach based on flexible macroalgae biomass”, 2018, in Applied Energy).

Awards

For his start-up idea of producing yeast oil from biogenic residues as a substitute for palm oil, Dr. Masri was awarded the 2nd place TUM IdeAward 2020.

Focus

Dr. Mahmoud Masri’s focus is on upscaling and validation for a sustainable and cost-effective production system of yeast oil as an alternative to palm oil.
