Cheaper cellulase?

Cellulase in an enzyme used to hydrolyze cellulose to cellubiose and glucose. Its high price has been a hinder to develop ethanol process from lignocelluloses via enzymatic processes. However, it seems the 10-years development at Novozyme (and hopefully Genecor as well) has succeeded to produce cheaper cellulase. I congradulate them for this success and hope to have the cheap cellulase soon in the market. Read more about it here!

  1. Just had a biotech business plan project and was looking for some cheap cellulase. Thanks for leading me to Novozyme:)
