Infinite Enzymes is a biotech company with a novel genetic technology for producing low-cost, plant-based enzymes for converting cellulosic biomass into biofuels and other biobased products.
Cellulose is the most abundant molecule on earth and has the potential to become a major feedstock source for manufacturing biofuels. The establishment of a viable and sustainable cellulosic biofuel industry will depend in large part on the ability to efficiently and economically process cellulosic biomass feedstocks, such as switchgrass and miscanthus, as well as the biomass of trees, and residual agricultural and forestry matter.
Infinite Enzymes’ plant genetic technology enables the production of cellulase enzymes in the embryo (germ) of the corn kernel. Using transgenic corn as a “plant factory” for producing cellulase enzymes, Infinite Enzymes can deliver high-quality, cost-competitive cellulase enzymes on a commercial scale without the capital intensive requirements and environmental costs associated with existing enzyme production through microbial/fungal fermentation processes. In fact, the application of Infinite Enzymes’ technology could save cellulosic biofuels manufacturers millions of dollars in operating costs and upfront capital costs, thus increasing the economic viability of companies in this industry.
