Our biomass enzyme solutions convert pretreated biomass into sugars for the production of renewable fuels and chemicals. When paired with a pretreatment, theses enzymes break down the chemical bonds in lignocellulosic material to produce C5 and C6 sugars that can be fermented to produce ethanol or processed to produce bioplastics or other high-value chemicals.
DuPont develops cellulase mixtures and accessory enzymes that fit the needs of your unique process configuration. Explore the technology leaders of specific Accellerase® enzyme mixtures below:
Feedstock flexible. Our enzymes unlock sugars from a range of lignocellulosic materials including wheat straw, corn stover, sugarcane bagasse, switch grass, paper pulp and dozens more.
Pre-treatment adaptable. Accellerase® works with a variety of pretreatment technologies and configurations including dilute acid, ammonia fiber expansion, steam explosion and combined processes.
Inhibitor tolerant. Our enzymes maintain robust performance throughout an extended saccharification process.
