Novozymes is the biotech-based world leader in enzymes and microorganisms. Using nature’s own technologies, we continuously expand the frontiers of biological solutions to improve industrial performance in all areas. From our headquarters in Denmark, Novozymes pioneered the industrial enzyme business more than 60 years ago and today commands more than 44 percent of the global market.
Novozymes’ 600 plus products are key in the production of thousands of consumer and industrial products used in everyday life – from bread, beer and bioethanol to textiles, detergent and animal feed. In more than 40 different industries and 130 countries, our biological solutions improve industrial performance and quality while saving water, energy, raw materials and waste. We have research and production facilities in numerous countries around the world, including Denmark, the U.S., China and Brazil.
In partnership with customers, technology leaders and other stakeholders, Novozymes’ 4,200 employees use nature’s diversity and our advanced biotech platform to make these unique qualities available to businesses everywhere. We imagine a future where our biological solutions create the necessary balance between better business, cleaner environment and better lives. We call it the industrial evolution.
Novozymes also is using our technology platform to expand our portfolio of biological solutions. With the acquisition of Novozymes Biopharma in 2002, we obtained the backbone for production of pharmaceutical proteins and launched in late 2004 our first biopolymer product, hyaluronic acid, for cosmetics use. In addition, Novozymes is exploring the potential for our technologies in other areas such as antimicrobial peptides and low-allergenic protein technology.
