2G Ethanol Pre-treatment Enzymes

While the production of commercial cellulase enzymes has advanced and Brazil runs 4 pilot plants in 2G Ethanol production, pre-treatment of the fibers to expose cellulose in sugar cane bagasse is still a challenge. Bio Bureau is the only company developing a biotechnology based solution for this problem, with focus in other remains such as forestry residues. The goal is to have a consortium of GMO organisms for pre-treatment that are able to triplicate the sugar production using comercial celluloses. A huge opportunity considering the market that will be opened for biomass conversion until 2030.
