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


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

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


lainausmerkki_kork_250pix.jpg With the help of VTT’s expertise and competence, we have reached significant improvements in enzyme / enzyme mixture performance.
