We're proud of our advances in enzyme innovation that help our stakeholders, customers and their consumers contribute to a better future by reducing reliance on precious world resources. We’re taking the steps necessary to safeguard our future against the risks of climate change by changing how we operate.

A catalyst for change

Enzymes are protein molecules made by living organisms and found everywhere in nature. They act as catalysts, making biochemical reactions happen faster than they would otherwise. Enzymes catalyse most biochemical reactions in humans, plants and animals.

The most significant advantage of enzymes within industrial use is that they work at low temperatures and moderate pH, with a high reaction rate. As such, enzymes help to reduce operating costs and increase production output. They reduce energy requirements, decrease waste and simplify production processes. They’re also fully biodegradable as industrial enzymes break down into amino acids that are naturally recycled into the environment.
