Cellulase enzyme product hits the market

25th April 2014


Dyadic, a global biotechnology company focused on the discovery, development, manufacture and sale of enzymes and other proteins for the bioenergy, bio-based chemicals, biopharmaceutical, food and feed industries, announced that it has launched Fibrezyme G4, a high-performance cellulase enzyme product designed to enhance paper and textile quality, while improving the economics of its customers’ manufacturing processes.

Fibrezyme G4 has shown to reduce energy requirements and increase production rates for pulp and paper manufacturers. In addition, it enhances and restores fibre strength and increases inter-fibre bonding in paper-making applications. In the textile industry, Fibrezyme G4 will be used to soften denim and create a stonewashed look for blue jeans. It operates under wide pH and temperature ranges, allowing for improved integration into a variety of pulp and paper and textile manufacturing processes.

Danai Brooks, Dyadic’s COO stated, "Fibrezyme G4 is a new addition to our product portfolio and provides further evidence of the capabilities of Dyadic’s C1 platform technology. We expect two key markets to be China and South Asia, which are growing and open to new entrants like Dyadic. Interest in pulp and paper enzymes in South Asia continues to grow in both commercial applications and innovation. South Asia is also one of the world’s largest textile enzyme markets. Over the past year, China has become an important part of our pulp and paper strategy as we continue to strengthen our commercial relationships in that country. In addition, government policy is increasingly focused on the environmental impact of mills, which is expected to drive up demand for enzymes like Fibrezyme G4.”
