Future-proof your products with green chemistry

Conventional fine chemicals often suffer from a number of unsustainable traits, not least their petrochemical origin, scarce supply, and the fact that they can be pollutants that create waste.

At the same time companies need to demonstrate more sustainable manufacturing processes with a reduced environmental impact.

So how can you meet the growing demand for pharmaceuticals with cost-effective fine chemicals that leave no impact on our planet, its people, and animals?

Achieve more with carbohydrases

Carbohydrases are a class of enzyme that catalyze carbohydrates into simple sugars. Novozymes offers a range of carbohydrase products to help hydrolyze (1,4)- and (1,6)-alpha-D-glucosidic linkages at the non-reducing ends of polysaccharides. This enables the formation of selective cyclodextrins that can reduce carbohydrates, such as starch and dextran, into smaller units.

Biocatalysis with carbohydrases give you cost savings, greater sustainability and better productivity. You can also achieve higher-quality active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and intermediates.
