 CHALLENGE

Develop efficient, thermo-stable enzymes / enzyme mixtures for the production of sugars from biomass

 SOLUTION

VTT evaluated candidate enzymes, developed optimised enzyme mixtures for a range of feedstocks, and improved the properties of mixture components via protein engineering.

 BENEFIT
  • Significantly reduced the enzyme dosage necessary for total biomass hydrolysis
  • Positive results opened up new market opportunities in biorefinery applications
