Genencor International, Inc. Receives 2009 New Product Innovation Award for Biomass Enzymes


1/13/2010 9:10:16 AM

PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Genencor, a division of Danisco A/S, is the recipient of the Frost & Sullivan 2009 New Product Innovation Award for Biomass Enzymes. The award was granted for Genencor's Accellerase(R) product line, enzymes used to convert biomass into sugar, a critical step in the production of cellulosic ethanol and other advanced biofuels and biochemicals.

"In the wake of the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, the worldwide drive for alternative, renewable fuels to help combat climate change is greater than ever," said Philippe Lavielle, executive vice president of business development for Genencor. "We are thrilled to be part of this international effort and honored to accept this award from Frost & Sullivan."

"It is with great pleasure that we present the 2009 New Product Innovation Award for Biomass Enzymes to Genencor, a company that is poised to make a significant contribution to the sustainable energy industry," said Frost & Sullivan research analyst Christina Priya Dhanuja. "Because Accellerase(R) addresses key process economics challenges, and provides a greater degree of feedstock and pre-treatment flexibility, Genencor has the potential to attract both biorefinery customers and traditional fossil fuel refiners that are transitioning into the biofuels market."
