The announcement helps to further validate Dyadic’s Dapibus microbial production platform, as Dyadic co-developed the product with Fermbox. The sugars enable the production of second-generation biofuels, such as cellulosic ethanol and serve as an alternative carbon source for producing bio-materials and bio-ingredients such as dyes, lipids, colors, unique food proteins, fragrances, and flavors. These products will strengthen the circular economy.

More importantly, the product will play a key role in the food vs. fuel debate concerning first-generation ethanol. This issue will be addressed by hydrolyzing agricultural residues into viable alternative carbon sources. Fermbox’s EN3ZYME product is designed to hydrolyze a wide variety of feedstock residues, including corn stover, cotton stalks, bagasse, and other cellulose-heavy materials.
