Scandinavian bioethanol project comes to positive end

Biotechnology company Dyadic has concluded its DISCO bioethanol project in cooperation with SEKAB E-Technology.

The goal of DISCO was to identify and develop more productive and cost-effective enzymes for the production of bioethanol from lignocellulosic raw materials.

Dyadic’s biofuels enzyme, AlternaFuel CMAX, was successfully verified by SEKAB at an ethanol demonstration plant based in Ornskoldsvik, Sweden.

 ‘SEKAB has the expertise to show if the results that we have seen at lab scale also work on a larger scale,’ says research director at Dyadic Netherlands, Jan Wery. ‘Such experiments are essential to show the maturity and scalability of our newly developed lignocellulosic enzymes. The enzyme industry is growing rapidly, partly because of the increasing demand for lignocellulosic biofuels.’
