DSM announces broad product offering for the biofuels industry
Innovation is at the core of DSM’s business with over one hundred years of experience in research, development and production of biotechnology. DSM continues to invest in the biofuel industry and has a dedicated team working on the development and commercialization of products and services for the industry. Global research facilities exist for the business in Illinois, USA and in Delft, the Netherlands.
DSM offers a range of yeast and enzyme solutions that enhance performance based on proprietary technology.
- For starch conversion, our yeast is tailored to provide a consistent increased ethanol yield, while significantly reducing glycerol production.
- For fiber conversion, our enzyme formulation maximizes hydrolysis with an enhanced liquefaction capability. In addition, our yeast can convert all available sugars at a high rate including glucose, xylose and arabinose.
- For biomass conversion, we offer both high performing yeast and enzymes solutions for multiple feedstocks and have an active partnership with POET-DSM Advanced Biofuels and its Liberty plant in Emmetsburg, Iowa for corn stover to ethanol production.
Our yeast and enzymes are manufactured in the USA. In addition, DSM offers a unique opportunity for on-site manufacturing of enzymes and the first of its kind facility is currently under construction at POET-DSM.
“We are excited about the growth that is taking place in the biofuels industry and the opportunity to offer a variety of different solutions that will enhance production capabilities” says Atul Thakrar, President of DSM Bio-based Products and Services. “DSM is committed to the journey of advancing the industry and looks forward to continuing to work with the market to create valuable solutions that enhance starch, fiber and biomass processes.
