State-of-the-Art Biotechnology Offering Will Increase Methane Yields and Improve Profitability

Wilmington, Del. (PRWEB) July 06, 2016 

Today, DuPont Industrial Biosciences announced the launch of OPTIMASH® AD-100, an innovative new enzyme product that will help biomethane producers improve biogas yields and process robustness, which is expected to ultimately increase their revenue and profitability.

OPTIMASH® AD-100 represents DuPont Industrial Biosciences' entry into the growing biogas sector, with an enzyme that has been shown to produce up to a 13 percent increase in biogas yields in anaerobic digesters. The enzyme breaks down organic matter – like food, paper, animal and farm wastes – resulting in sugars more suitable for biogas-producing microorganisms. The addition of this enzyme into the biomethane process improves the profitability for customers and operators by reducing feedstock requirements and increasing biogas production.
