DuPont and Bock partner to distribute biogas enzyme technology

Industrial enzyme manufacturer DuPont Industrial Biosciences and silage storage specialist Bock UK have announced a strategic partnership where Bock will demonstrate DuPont’s biogas enzyme technology at commercial scale in the UK market. The enzyme technology, OPTIMASH AD-100, has been shown to help biogas producers in the agricultural sector improve yields and process robustness.

OPTIMASH AD-100 works by accelerating the breakdown of various materials such as maize silage, grasses, straw, manures and some food wastes, resulting in sugars more suitable for conversion into biogas. The easy-to-use liquid enzyme product has been shown to produce up to a 13% increase in biogas yields in anaerobic digesters, according to DuPont.
