DuPont introduces an enzyme to improve gas yields

The new enzyme will help biomethane producers to improve biogas yields and process robustness.

DuPont, one of EBA’s most recent members, has launched an innovate enzyme Optimash AD-100, which increases the revenue and profitability. The company stated that this new enzyme produces up to 13% increase in biogas yields in anaerobic digesters.

Optimash AD-100 breaks down opganic matterm such as food, paper, animal and farm wastes, resulting in sugars more suitable for biogas-producing micoorganisms. In addition, when used in biomethane porcess, this enzyme imporves profitability for customers and operators by reducing feedstock requirements and increasing niogas production.

Conard Burkem, global marketing director commented: “DuPont is entering this market with an offering that is backed by decades of experience in the global industrial enzyme business.Customers can expect this technology to increase biogas production, improve biogas quality, shorten process time and reduce mixing costs – all supported by a global organization with continuous investment in research and development.”

DuPont aims for providing the market-driven, biobased solutions which will meet the needs of a growing population, while protecting the environment for future generations.
