Application of enzymes for bioeconomy solutions
Forskningsprojekt , 2015 – 2016

The discovery in 2010-11 of a new class of oxidative enzymes which are capable of breaking glucosidic bonds and hereby leads to significant improvement in the efficiency of enzymatic saccharification has been ground breaking. These findings opened a door to a completely new field of research within this novel class of enzymes – now termed lytic polysaccharide monooxygenases, LPMO – and to the need re-optimization of the application of cellulolytic enzymes in a biorefinery context.
