Novozymes Announces New Enzyme That Will Create Savings For Starch Producers
On February 28, 2014, global enzyme producer Novozymes announced the launch of a new enzyme solution, LpHera®, that helps make starch conversion more efficient. Starches are used in many consumer products, including sweeteners and soft drinks. Novozymes asserts that LpHera will increase yields, cut chemical usage in half and lead to water and energy savings. The company estimates that the new enzyme could save a starch producer up to $1 per metric ton of substrate. A copy of Novozymes' press release is available online.
