A Breakthrough Enzyme Product for Cellulosic Biofuels Development

Genencor, a division of Danisco A/S, today introduced Accellerase® DUET at the Renewable Fuels Association's 15th Annual National Ethanol Conference in Orlando, Fla. This product is the latest generation in the company's line of enzymes used to convert biomass into sugars, a critical step in the production of cellulosic ethanol and other advanced biofuels and biochemicals from non-food feedstocks.

"Genencor has a long tradition of commitment to addressing the need for alternative, renewable fuels to help combat climate change," says Philippe Lavielle, executive vice president of business development for Genencor.  "The renewed commitment earlier this month by the Obama Administration to support the rapid development of renewable fuels is encouraging and exciting. With more than 10 years of scientific investment in this area and a world class, global manufacturing infrastructure, Genencor is now ready to support the fast deployment of cellulosic biofuels. Accellerase® DUET is set to become the standard that this industry is looking for in terms of cost and performance."
