Accellerase® Trio: Advances in Cellulosic Enzymes for Commercial Biorefineries

International Congress on Energy (ICE)
AIChE Annual Meeting
November 1, 2012 - 3:15pm-3:45pm

Providing nearly 400 enzyme products ranging from food and beverages to household cleaning and biofuels, Genencor has been a world leader in industrial biotechnology and a pioneer in enzyme innovation.  Now a part of DuPont, DuPont Industrial Biosciences provides enzyme products for biomass hydrolysis and offers complete solutions along the entire biorefinery value chain. DuPont's latest generation of biomass enzyme complex, Accellerase® TRIO, is a breakthrough in enzymatic hydrolysis that coverts biomass into fermentable C5 and C6 sugars, often up to 2-fold lower dose. The performance results using Accellerase® TRIO in enzymatic saccharification of various biomass substrates with different types of pretreatment will be presented. Additionally, key learnings and feedback from customers in the emerging biomass industry will be discussed, in relation to the commercialization of 2nd generation ethanol technologies.

With substantial investments planned for the emerging biomass industry, DuPont is building its first commercial cellulosic ethanol plant in Nevada, Iowa. This demonstrates a strategy for success by touching every point along the value chain from farm to factory, to the development of a bio-based economy.
