MetGen continuously develops new biorefinery enzymes for renewable chemical applications. MetZymes® are designed to challenging conditions typical for industrial biorefineries, such as high temperatures and extreme pH values. Therefore MetZyme® can be used with process parameters beyond typical enzyme-related restrictions. 

MetZyme® enzyme solutions significantly improve the economics of lignocellulosic chemicals production, including biofuels. They save energy, improve sugar yields, remove inhibitors and improve the overall process economy. MetZyme® can be used in various process steps for optimal results in conversion of lignocellulosic material to value-added chemicals. Powerful MetZyme® solutions are designed for specific action on your substrate and process – a solution tailored to improve the economics of your process.

MetGen can help to get more out of your biomass with our industrial biorefinery enzymes – MetZyme® solutions.

Solutions for Lignofuels

MetZyme® solutions are individually tailored for each lignocellulosic biomass and process. MetZyme® can handle a wide range of the process parameters beyond typical enzyme-related restrictions. In biofuel applications, MetZyme® breaks the recalcitrance, catalyzes lignin reactions, and together with its powerful cellulase and hemicellulase complexes the solution enables more thorough hydrolysis. Oxidoreductases eliminate a wide range of known inhibitors that may slow down your process or end up in side streams.

This combinatory action between oxidoreductases and hydrolases result in increased  yield of reducing sugars as well as potentially accelerated conversion or fermentation rates.

Lignin crafting technologies

In specific conditions MetZyme® oxidative action leads to catalytic fragmentation of lignin to low molecular weight aromatic compounds, which can open opportunities for new value added-product streams in biorefineries. These new streams can be further utilized – e.g. polymerized or depolymerized – by further enzymatic conversion
