Enzyme-assisted products and processes enjoy increasing demand, as they can replace more environmentally intrusive conventional chemicals, or more energy-intensive processes. In nature, enzymes catalyse biochemical reactions. They convert food in our stomachs into energy and turn fallen leaves into compost. In industry, enzymes replace chemicals and accelerate production processes. They help companies produce more, while using less water, energy and raw materials with a technology that replaces conventional chemicals and reduces environmental impact.
