2008 - Iogen
Enzyme technology is one of the key areas of Iogen's
innovation. Iogen owns and operates a large-scale
state-of-the-art enzyme manufacturing facility in
Ottawa, Canada. The plant serves customers around
the world with products designed for specific-use
applications. The company's core skills include
protein engineering, enzyme expression, fermentation
development, enzyme manufacturing, enzyme application
engineering, and operation of enzyme-based reactions.
Iogen's enzymes are now used in the pulp and paper,
textile and animal feed industries. In the pulp
and paper industry, Iogen enzymes help decrease
the amount of chlorinated chemicals used in bleaching,
as well as reduce production costs. In the textile,
industry enzymes help fade, soften or depill fabrics
and garments. In the animal feed industry, enzymes
help chickens and pigs digest their food. Iogen's
enzyme products include the BioBrite®, Denabraide®,
and Fibrilase® enzyme product lines.
Iogen's line of enzymes for cellulosic ethanol
production is currently being used in the company's
demonstration plant. These enzymes will be available
for sale in conjunction with technology licenses
for the cellulosic ethanol facilities in the future.
