In Michigan, MBI reports that the DOE has awarded Novozymes and MBI up to $2.5 million to develop new enzyme-based technologies to convert corn stover into sugars. Novozymes, a world-leading enzyme company, brings its depth of expertise in enzyme screening and development to the partnership, while MBI brings its innovative AFEX biomass processing technology. AFEX technology can be used in depots close to the farm, allowing dense biomass pellets to be economically stored and shipped to a biorefinery. AFEX also alters the biomass structure so that enzymes can more effectively break the biomass down into fermentable sugars for conversion into bio-based fuels, chemicals and other products.
