The latest arrival in the world of Industrial Biotechnology is production of Bio-ethanol from Lignocellulosic and Cereal based biomass with the assistance of Biofuel Enzymes.

The Bioconversion of lignocellulosic biomass to ethanol involves the release of sugars from biomass. These materials can be divided into cellulose and hemicelluloses. Cellulose and hemicelluloses contain sugars in a form that can be converted by enzymes to fermentable products. Thus suitable Cellulase / Hemicellulase enzymes are used to effectively degrade and convert these biopolymers.

The Bioconversion of cereal based biomass involves liquefaction and saccharification of starch matter to glucose which can be fermented to produce ethanol. Thermostable Alpha Amylase Enzymes and Glucoamylase Enzymes are used in the said two-step process. Xylanase Enzymes may be used to reduce the viscosity in liquefaction process.

A novel approach to production of Bio-Gas from waste biomass is pre-treatment with selective hydrolytic enzymes to aid in the initial hydrolysis step which is commonly achieved with the help of anaerobic bacteria capable of producing the needed hydrolytic enzymes. The enzymatic pre-treatment using a select blend of enzymes depending upon the composition of the biomass enables to catalyze the process which otherwise depends on the propagation of the micro-organisms and the turnaround time involved. Such a treatment complements the existing processing steps providing for better nutrient availability to the flora of micro-organisms involved in the anaerobic reaction.

 

CELLULASE ENZYMES

 

Archizyme – CELL

 

DESCRIPTION

Archizyme – CELLis a Cellulase / Hemicellulase enzyme complex derived from a selected strain of Trichoderma spp. It has been developed to breakdown the Cellulose, Xylan, Arabinan and other Hemicellulolytic components in Lignocellulosic materials. Its high level of Cellulase / Xylanase activities enables it to break down non-starch polysaccharides. Endo-cellulase breaks internal bonds to disrupt the crystalline structure of cellulose and expose individual cellulose polysaccharide chains. Exo-cellulase cleaves 2-4 units from the ends of the exposed chains produced by the endo-cellulase, resulting in tetrasaccharides or disaccharide such as cellobiose. There are two main types of exo-cellulases (or cellobiohydrolases- CBH), one type working from the reducing end, and other type working from the non-reducing end of cellulose chain. Cellobiase or beta-glucosidase hydrolyses the exo-cellulase product into monosaccharides, suitable for fermentation. The Xylanase side activity enables the degradation of Xylan which one of the major constituents of plant cell walls in the Lignin structure, thus enhancing the Cellulase performance.

ANIMAL FEED AND HEALTHCARE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The basic composition of feed for animals is plants, cereal grains and vegetable derived proteins. Most commonly used feed additives are cereal grains and lignocellulosic materials which are primarily composed of Starch, Non-Starch polysaccharides (Hemicellulose matter such as Beta-Glucans, Xylans / Arabino Xylans, Cellulose etc) and Proteins. Monogastric animals are unable to facilitate complete digestion of these items due to anti-nutritional factors, which in the case of animal feeds would be Non-starch Polysaccharides (NSP) due to their soluble nature which causes swelling and increases the viscosity in the intestine of the animals. This also blocks the access to nutrients in the feed causing adverse effects such as slow intestinal passage, fewer intakes of nutrients while also affecting digestibility.

Addition of enzymes such as B-Glucanase, Xylanase and Cellulase / Hemicellulase in animal feed enables breakdown of these NSP elements solving the above problems faced by feed industry. The benefits achieved are increased Metabolizable Energy and access to proteins in the feed, enhancing protein utilization. Enzymes such as Alpha Amylase, Lipase and Protease further break down the starch, lipids and proteins in the feed to smaller molecules facilitating better digestion. Specifically for Poultry feed which compromises of Barley, addition of Beta Glucanase to the feed mixture solves the problems of wet droppings and enables healthy growth.

Another problem faced by the feed industry is of Phytate present in feedstuffs of plant origin, which is poorly digested by non-ruminant animals such as poultry. Phytate (or Phytic Acid) is found majorly in feedstuff of plant origin and contains Phosphorous which is the most important mineral required by poultry for their bone and muscle development. Phytic acid also forms complexes with Proteins and minerals such as Calcium and Magnesium thus acting as an anti-nutritional factor. The output of undigested Phosphorous into the environment causes algal bloom, thus further causing Eutrophication.

Supplementation of Phytase Enzyme in the poultry feed enables efficient breakdown of Phytate complexes present in the feed liberating Phosphorous, minerals bound to the complex such as Calcium and Magnesium along with Proteins thus providing for a diet rich in nutrients. Phosphorous, Calcium and Magnesium uptake by poultry provides for healthy skeletal development while the liberated proteins allow for muscular growth. Also the excretion of phosphorous into the environment is eliminated thus solving the posed environmental issues.

ndustrial Enzymes find a host of application in the Paper Processing Industry and now enzymes play an important part in the fundamental processes involved in paper making. A host of technical issues such as increasing productivity while lowering effluent loads are a few challenges faced by most paper mills around the world and Industrial Biotechnology has helped paper mills address these problems by providing cost effective and ecofriendly solutions. Addressing environmental issues is one thing but providing quality products along with tackling environmental concerns is what makes Paper Enzymes a desirable product for paper mills around the world.

Paper Enzymes such as Deinking Enzymes are now boosting the recycled paper manufacturing process by addressing the fundamental problem of removing polymeric inks with the use of enzymes thus replacing conventional chemicals. The quality of end products is far better than compared to the ones manufactured using harsh chemicals.

Biorefining Enzymes provide tissue paper manufacturers with the much needed solution to increase throughput and reducing the refiner load. Biobleaching Enzymes enable paper processors to lower the use of chlorine based bleaching chemicals by opening the hemicellulose structure of the pulp thereby improving access. This results in reduced consumption, improved fiber properties and reduction of environmental pollution.

Archimedes Enzymes is a manufacturer of complete range of Paper Enzymes in Concentrated form (for Formulation) and ready to use Formulations for end use by Paper manufacturers.
