DuPont Industrial Biosciences, MIAVIT ink Supply Agreement for Biogas Enzymes

November 20, 2016 |

In Germany,  DuPont Industrial Biosciences and MIAVIT GmbH announced a supply agreement where DuPont will supply enzymes for incorporation in biogas-boosting products distributed by MIAVIT.  Enzyme technology has been proven to improve biogas yields and process robustness, ultimately increasing customers’ revenue and profitability while increasing offerings in renewable energy.

DuPont Industrial Biosciences will provide its FIBREZYME G4 enzyme biotechnology to MIAVIT for inclusion in MiaMethan ProCut, a new biogas ingredient for the agricultural sector sold by MIAVIT. MiaMethan® ProCut helps improve the breakdown of poorly digestible materials to allow for more efficient conversion to biogas. DuPont has more than three decades of experience supplying enzymes into new markets. In July, the company announced its entry into the growing biogas sector with the launch of OPTIMASH AD-100, an innovative new liquid enzyme product that has been shown to produce up to a 13 percent increase in biogas yields in anaerobic digesters. FIBREZYME G4, the company’s latest enzyme offering, available in powder format helps reduce the viscosity of poorly digestible materials by over 60 percent, thereby allowing faster processing time.

DuPont Industrial Biosciences recently partnered with the American Biogas Council and the United States Department of Energy to host Using Biotechnology to Drive Progress in the Biogas Industry, a webinar discussing opportunities and challenges facing biogas producers in today’s global market.

For more than 10 years, MIAVIT has been providing its customers with know-how and service. Recent studies show that MiaMethan® ProCut, which is compared to other products, has extremely high cellulase activity. In addition to the MiaMethan® ProCut highlight, MIAVIT will present its complete biogas program at EuroTier. Individual trace element mixtures in liquid and solid form, but also combinations such as the product MiaMethan® Kombi E are the focus. For additional information about MIAVIT, please visit
