Genencor International, Inc. (GCOR) Launches Improved Acid Fungal Protease For Use In The Ethanol Industry


6/19/2006 12:09:30 PM

PALO ALTO, Calif., June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Genencor International, a division of Danisco A/S, announced today the availability of a new acid fungal protease enzyme product for use in the ethanol industry. The new product, called FERMGEN(TM) will be introduced this week at the Fuel Ethanol Workshop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The new FERMGEN(TM) protease enzyme offers a number of benefits which include:

* Faster ethanol fermentation rates and yield for corn, milo or wheat based substrates as compared with fermentations without acid fungal protease * Increased essential yeast nutrients in the form of amino acids, peptides and free amino nitrogen * Hydrolyzes protein matrices in the corn kernel that bind the various fractions thereby enabling the hydrolysis of the "hard" to hydrolyze starch * Effective at a pH of 3.0 - 4.5, which is complimented by the average current fermentation pH that is employed in the fuel ethanol industry

"Enzyme innovation is an important part of improved industry productivity," says Brian Carter, Vice President, Genencor. "Genencor is dedicated to continued innovation for the ethanol industry."

About Genencor: Genencor International, a division of Danisco A/S, is a leading industrial biotechnology company that develops innovative enzymes and bioproducts to improve the performance and reduce the environmental impact of the cleaning, textiles, fuels and chemicals industries.
