AlternaFuel® CMAX3(TM) performance equals and surpasses leading biofuels enzymes.

Dyadic International, Inc. unveiled its latest biofuels enzyme advancement, AlternaFuel® CMAX3(TM). This next generation product enables the production of cellulosic biofuels and bio-based chemicals from a wide range of renewable non-food feedstocks under broad operating conditions.

Dyadic's President and CEO, Mark Emalfarb, stated, "The data supporting this product clearly demonstrates Dyadic's scientific capabilities to leverage our C1 technology platform to create enzyme mixtures whose performance rivals the leading biofuels enzyme product on the market. This is largely due to the inherent robustness and versatility of the C1 genome and expression system, both of which have considerable untapped potential. The results obtained with AlternaFuel® CMAX3(TM) are not only relevant for the production of biofuels but also for bio-based chemicals and biogas. Dyadic and its licensees are continuing to develop better performing enzymes to further reduce the total cost of producing advanced biofuels and other bio-based products."

Jan Wery, Science Director at Dyadic Netherlands, added, "AlternaFuel® CMAX3(TM) achieved a similar saccharification yield at pH 5.0 and substantially better results at pH 6.0 than those achieved by the current leading competitive biofuels enzyme product. Saccharification yield is defined as the relative amount of fermentable sugars released through enzymatic hydrolysis from lignocellulosic biomass such as agricultural feedstock and waste. This important parameter demonstrates the level of progress being made across the entire industrial enzyme industry in developing enzymes necessary for lignocellulosic biomass to replace petroleum in fuel and chemical production."
