Advanced biofuels becoming reality,

Meng Lian 15°

Advanced biofuels becoming reality with Novozymes’ new enzyme technology, Cellic CTec3, decreases costs and increases yields in production of advanced biofuels from agricultural residues and waste.

The enzyme enables cost-efficient conversion of biomass to ethanol and performs 1.5 times better than Novozymes’ previous market-leading product, Cellic CTec2. Using Cellic CTec3, biofuel producers need only one-fifth of the enzyme dose compared to competing enzymes.

Highly effective, it takes only 50 kg of Cellic CTec3 to make 1 ton of ethanol from biomass. By comparison, it requires at least 250 kg of a competing enzyme product to make the same amount of ethanol.
