industrial enzymes and microorganisms. Enzymes are proteins, and in nature they initiate biochemical reactions in all living organisms. It is enzymes that convert the
food in our stomachs to energy and turn the falling leaves in the

Novozymes finds enzymes in nature and optimize them for use in
industry. In industry, enzymes replace chemicals and accelerate
production processes. They help our customers make more from
less, while saving energy and generating less waste.
Enzymes are widely used in laundry and dishwashing detergents
where they remove stains and enable low-temperature washing
and concentrated detergents.

increase the nutritional value of animal feed. Enzymes are also

cellulose from biomass into sugars which can be fermented to
These are just a few examples as we sell enzymes to more than
40 different industries.
