Dyadic reveals new biofuels enzyme product

Greentech Lead Europe: Dyadic International, a global
biotechnology company, has launched AlternaFuel CMAX3, its next
generation biofuels enzyme product. AlternaFuel CMAX3 enables
the production of cellulosic biofuels and bio-based chemicals from a wide range
of renewable non-food feedstocks under broad operating conditions.

“The results obtained with AlternaFuel
CMAX3 are not only relevant for the production of 
Biofuels but also for bio-based
chemicals and biogas. Dyadic and its licensees are continuing to develop better
performing enzymes to further reduce the total cost of producing advanced
biofuels and other bio-based products,” said Mark
Emalfarb, Dyadic’s president and CEO.

AlternaFuel CMAX3 is a cellulase and hemicellulase
complex based on Dyadic’s C1 platform technology which enables efficient
conversion of multiple forms of non-food 
biomass into
fermentable sugars at broad pH and temperature ranges that can be used to
produce biofuels, bio-based chemicals, biogas and other bio-based products

“AlternaFuel CMAX3 achieved a similar
saccharification yield at pH 5.0 and substantially better results at pH 6.0
than those achieved by the current leading competitive biofuels enzyme product.
Saccharification yield is defined as the relative amount of fermentable sugars
released through enzymatic hydrolysis from lignocellulosic biomass such as
agricultural feedstock and waste. This important parameter demonstrates the
level of progress being made across the entire industrial enzyme industry in
developing enzymes necessary for lignocellulosic biomass to replace petroleum
in fuel and chemical production,” said Jan Wery, science director at
Dyadic Netherlands.
