Improved enzymes for more efficient bioconversion
For biorefineries, the market typically offers only a general combination of enzymes. This makes the enzymatic hydrolysis process quite slow and costly. The tailor-made enzymatic cocktail developed by BIOrescue partner MetGen reduces the time and quantity of enzymes needed for the hydrolysis sugars by at least 20%.
Besides that, these enzymes can survive in harsh industrial environments which opens the door for novel applications and combination with other enzymes.

MetGen’s proprietary enzymatic solutions tailored to extract the sugars from the mushroom compost in an optimal way
Achieves a maximal conversion yield (>95%) when converting pre-treated mushroom compost into monosugars.
MetGen’s innovative alkaliphilic laccase, which is an integral part of METNIN™ lignin fractionation technology to produce highly reactive depolymerised lignin in a very sustainable and efficient manner.
- Avoids the use of heavy metals or toxic solvents.
- Operates in mild process conditions (temperature below 60°C) to effectively break down lignin
- Preserving its desirable properties.
Produces highly active lignin fractions specifically tailored for different applications.
