Enzymatic processes and enzyme development in biorefining

S.A. Teter, K. Brandon Sutton and B. Emme,    Novozymes, USA

Abstract:

Improvements in enzyme cocktails for converting biomass have driven down costs for production of bioproducts and have allowed commercialization of the first cellulosic biorefineries. Innovations in biochemical engineering have resulted in cocktails that require dramatically less enzyme for a given level of biomass conversion than were required just a few years ago. Developments in the enzymes themselves must be accompanied by optimization of the biochemical conversion process to allow for the lowest possible product costs to be achieved. This chapter describes both enzyme innovations and critical themes in process ...
