Enzymes make the products and processes even better, every day. We apply our science to your business for a more sustainable world.
What are enzymes?
Enzymes are generally produced by using bacteria and fungi, can be in the form of the solid or liquid, are biological catalysts that accelerate chemical reactions, reduce the consumption of chemicals, water&energy and decrease the waste generation, contribute sustainable development and offer environmentally friendly solutions, require low energy, low cost and little storage space.
Why use enzymes?
Green energy sources are environmentally friendly, reliable and renewable solutions. Enzymes can help to create new green energy sources. They are a brand new approach to find solutions for declining fossil energy sources and global warming. Enzymes can be used in the various area both in our daily life and industrial places. Some agricultural areas have a rich biodiversity with their high soil fertility, sufficient water resource and climate. Despite these lucky features of these geographical locations, productivity of agricultural areas decrease constantly due to lack of awareness of modern bio-techniques and unsuitable water resource management. Enzyme based products of biotech industry increase productivity and save water for agriculture by enriching the soil, improving nutrient absorption, being used as bio-pesticide and helping to
increase water holding capacity.
How enzymes work?
Enzymes are biological molecules (typically proteins) that significantly speed up the rate of virtually all of the chemical reactions that take place within cells.
They are vital for life and serve a wide range of important functions in the body, such as aiding in digestion and metabolism.
Some enzymes help break large molecules into smaller pieces that are more easily absorbed by the body. Other enzymes help bind two molecules together to produce a new molecule. Enzymes are highly selective catalysts, meaning that each enzyme only speeds up a specific reaction.
The molecules that an enzyme works with are called substrates. The substrates bind to a region on the enzyme called the active site.' by Joseph Castro.
