Product range

Designed for performance

Our flexible suite of products for biofuels and biogas is designed with your plant's performance in mind.

The Novozymes Avantec® and Novozymes Liquozyme®  portfolios of alpha-amylases deliver benefits in liquefaction.  

Avantec®

  • 70-90% lower nitrogen inputs
  • Up to 15% more corn oil yield
  • 2-3% ethanol yield improvement
  • Significant viscosity enhancement
  • Optimized throughput improvement
  • Total removal of stand-alone protease 

Liquozyme®

  • Low pH viscosity reduction at low usage cost
  • Reliable viscosity reduction for a broad range of operation conditions
  • Broad pH range – pH 5.0-6.0
  • Enables higher solids through superior viscosity break
  • Available in super-concentrated formulations 

 

The Novozymes Spirizyme® portfolio 
of fiber-degrading glucoamylases deliver benefits in saccharification. 
 
Choose the robustness in starch conversion and fermentation efficiency that suits your plant’s performance goals.

 • Releases bound starch from beneath the cell wall

 • 2% ethanol yield improvement

 • Increased corn oil yields

 • 2% natural gas reduction

 • Works well with longer fermentation times

The Novozymes Viscozyme® portfolio of viscosity- reducing xylanases deliver  benefits in process enhancement.

 • Superior viscosity reduction above 80°C

 • Heat stable xylanase for viscosity reduction

 • Higher ethanol production

 • Lower operating costs

 • Flexible temperature use below 80°C 

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.

New tools for old tasks

Terms like "big data" and "data analytics" signal big changes for the ethanol industry. Some plants might be unprepared for them.
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.
