Novozymes Eversa® is an enzymatic alternative for biodiesel production.
With Eversa®, sulphuric acid is unnecessary, even for biodiesel feedstocks with high free fatty acids (FFAs) like palm oil.
Eversa® also delivers additional benefits in biodiesel production.
• Suited for high FFA levels
• Eliminates need for sulphuric acid and sodium methoxide
• Feedstock flexibility
• Lower energy and methanol costs
• Higher yields or higher capacity
• Increased safety
• Higher-quality glycerin
Novozymes BG Max® is a unique microbial biogas production product that:
• Improves biogas production by 37% for an improved energy balance
• Reduces operating costs
• Improves performance
• Simplifies operations
• Improves cost-effectiveness
Novozymes’ new yeast, Innova® Drive, puts you in control, eliminating the operational stress created by your yeast.
- Maintain ethanol production through high organic acid events
- Reliably produce ethanol at temperature excursions up to 98°F
- Run faster fermentations at higher solids
- Expresses advanced glucoamylase to maximize starch conversion, with two times the performance of other yeasts
New tools for old tasks
Big data may be old news to us…but there’s a revolution happening in the tools available to analyze it. Based on his 30-plus years of experience in the industry, principal scientist Frank Moore believes that the true change is about rapid, real-time tracking and analysis made possible by new tools.
