Technology Features & Specifications
The technology provider aims to drive four main points to change the future of bio-refining: First, to directly market the on-shelf enzymatic solutions in Asia: They have industrial enzymes for pulp and paper, bio-refining, biogas, and water treatment. These product lines are currently being supplied to European markets, and they are looking forward to the bringing cutting-edge solutions available also in Asia. Second is the recently patent-filed new and revolutionary chemo-enzymatic route to renewable plastics from sugars, which potentially allows a high yield of renewable platform chemicals (such as HMFA, a precursor to FDCA) from glucose. The third point is their unique capabilities for lignin modification: They have developed lignin modifying enzymes that work at pH 11, a condition where lignin is fully water-soluble. The fourth point is that company has an extensive network of technology partners and through the combined technologies within the network, they can offer very comprehensive solutions: New tailored enzymatic solution and also turn-key solutions for biochemical production facilities including the pre-treatment technologies and design.
While fulfilling customers’ (otherwise unmet) performance requirements, the offered solutions provide a broad range of sustainability and operational benefits, in particular, energy savings, higher yields, improved product and less waste. The areas which the technologies have been deployed are: · pulp and paper · lignocellulosic biomass · bio-refining/renewable chemicals · water treatment · biogas · textiles. The enzymatic technologies are able to boost profitability and sustainability by reducing energy and chemical consumption as well as improving end-product quality. At the same time, the impact in carbon footprint is significant. The company thrive to minimize the environmental footprint and reduce our customers’ dependence on fossil fuels by increasing production yields with reduced costs and energy consumption – making more out of less.
For pulp, paper and packaging industries, it can help an individual mill save millions of euros a year in energy savings alone. Much more – often additional – benefits such as reduced chemical usage and improved fibre quality can also be achieved. In the fine chemical production, the company aims to revolutionize the production of sustainable bio-based chemicals by improving the productivity and economics of various processing steps. For the water and biogas production or treatment, the enzymatic technologies provide an excellent tool-set to break down inhibitors and lignin recalcitrance that reduce the efficiencyof water treatment and biogas processesalike. The ability to address the soluble lignin, other phenolic compounds, and micro-pollutants make our solutions truly unique. The technology owner continuously develops new enzymes for challenging applications to complement and improve the characteristics value proposition to the selected industries. They are seeking partners for collaborations to develop innovative and specific enzymatic solutions tailored made for every process.
