“Continuous strain improvement enables us to innovate every day, to produce the best industrial enzymes to perform the specific tasks our customers require.
That could be a more stable enzyme in high temperatures or pH; one that saves energy and reduces costs; or an enzyme that replaces petroleum-derived chemicals. So we continually optimize our bacterial and fungal microorganisms as production hosts or ‘cell factories’. It’s inside these that we will produce new protein molecules.
At the same time, we screen the re-engineered enzymes for improved performance in different industrial applications, such as low temperature detergents, biofuels, food and beverages.
Once optimized, our improved strains are quickly transferred into our production facilities - so every day, we’re becoming more efficient.”
