While fulfilling customers’ (otherwise unmet) performance requirements, at cost points in-line with more established enzyme peers, MetGen’s solutions provide a broad range of sustainability and operational benefits, in particular, energy savings, higher yields, improved product and less waste.
In pulp and paper, MetZyme® boosts profitability and sustainability by reducing energy and chemical consumption as well as improving end-product quality. At the same time, the impact in carbon footprint is significant. Enzymatic technologies are a natural way to reduce dependence on harsh chemicals or over – processing while improving the process – economically, technologically, and environmentally.
MetGen’s enzymes contribute to the development of affordable sugars and renewable biochemicals from cellulosic feedstock. On its part, MetGen paves the way towards affordable 2nd generation biofuels and bio-based chemicals, hence enabling a paradigm shift in the chemical industry to move away from petroleum and change over to renewable biomass.
Lignocellulosic biomass – a variety of non-edible, woody materials – is the largest renewable reservoir of fermentable carbohydrates, aromatic compounds, and other chemical building blocks. It is composed of cellulose and hemicellulose embedded in lignin. The MetGen technology platform enables further improvements in the bioconversion of all parts of lignocellulosic biomass into value-added chemicals, including biofuels.
We at MetGen thrive to minimize the environmental footprint and reduce our customers’ dependence on fossil fuels by increasing production yields with reduced costs and energy consumption – making more out of less.
MetZyme® is a label of Quality & Sustainability.
