  • Ethanol from Bagasse: Accellerase® to share insights about the cellulosic industry at World Bio Markets Brazil

    UPCOMING EVENT: World Bio Markets Brazil
    September 17-18 | Sao Paulo, Brazil

    Marcelo Borges, director for business development, will join ethanol leaders in Sao Paulo to discuss Brazil’s leap from sugarcane ethanol to cellulosic. With Brazilian demand for ethanol projected to double by 2020, how can sugarmills expand their production to include material such as bagasse or cane straw?

    During a panel discussion, Marcelo will discuss the advantages of producing cellulosic sugars and ethanol in Brazil and the technologies that will enable breakthrough growth in the region.

  • How Do Industrial Enzymes Work?

    The biomass enzymes used to produce cellulosic ethanol come from nature. They speed up the biochemical reactions in biomass so that it decomposes quickly enough for industrial uses, like producing ethanol. This slide show for non-scientists provides a simple explanation of how enzymes work.
