DuPont, Bock Partner for Biogas Enzymes Distribution

July 2, 2017 |

In the UK, DuPont Industrial Biosciences (DuPont) and silage storage specialists Bock UK Ltd (Bock) announced a strategic partnership where Bock will demonstrate DuPont’s biogas enzyme technology at commercial scale in the U.K. market. The enzyme technology, OPTIMASH® AD-100, has been shown to help biogas producers in the agricultural sector improve yields and process robustness, which ultimately can increase customers’ revenue and profitability while simultaneously increasing offerings in renewable energy.

DuPont intends to provide its OPTIMASH AD-100 enzyme biotechnology, an innovative and easy to use liquid enzyme product that has been shown to produce up to a 13 percent increase in biogas yields in anaerobic digesters, to Bock for distribution of the biogas enzymes to customers across the United Kingdom.

The biotechnology works by accelerating the breakdown of various materials such as maize silage, grasses, straw, as well as manures and some food wastes, resulting in sugars more suitable for conversion into biogas. DuPont entered the growing biogas sector with the launch of OPTIMASH AD-100 in July 2016.
