ENZbleach: An alkaline-tolerant enzyme for pulp bleaching process
ENZbleach has been in the development by BIOTEC Enzyme Technology Laboratory, since 2008. The invention was unveiled at NSTDA Investors’ Day held on 22 September 2011, with Dr. Thidarat Nimchua, member of the research team winning the Best Presentation Award.
Enzyme Technology Laboratory actively works with industrial partners, to realize applications of enzymes in various industries. These include the use of non-starch polysaccharide hydrolyzing enzymes and phytases in the animal feed industry, the application of lignocellulolytic enzymes in biomass conversion process of agro-industrial by-products to value-added products, such as biofuels, bio-plastics and chemicals and also application of cellulolytic/hemicellulolytic enzymes in the pulp and paper industry.
