The initiative towards green chemistry is all about creating and redesigning chemical processes to conserve natural resources, reduce hazardous waste and minimize the environmental impact of chemistry.
Biocatalysis is all about enzymes. These are protein-based catalysts that are found everywhere in nature, enabling biochemical reactions. Biocatalysis for manufacture extends this natural mechanism to generate enzymes that can initiate and facilitate chemical reactions to synthesize industrially relevant compounds.
Biocatalysis has the potential to be superior to traditional chemocatalysis in every aspect. Using enzymes is regio-selective, more efficient and requires milder conditions and the enzymes are reusable and biodegradeable. These benefits mean that traditional difficulties of industrial chemistry can be overcome.
We know the power of enzymes, but they can be difficult to use in industrial conditions. Our advanced enzyme immobilization technology can greatly improve the thermal stability, pH tolerance, activity, and reusability of any enzyme.
The field of biocatalysis has developed in waves over the last 100 years since its discovery. In this time there have been three waves of innovation that have advanced the technology available. Zymtronix is focussed on leading the next wave of biocatalysis.
The next wave of biocatalysis will allow industrial scale biocatalysis without compromising on cost effectiveness or activity of enzymes. Zymtronix's magnetic nanoparticle technology is poised to advance what is achieveable and bring the next wave of biocatalysis.
To provide our customers with the tools to combine and optimize any enzymes and reduce the time, cost and environmental impact of their processes.
To lead the next wave of biocatalysis with next generation, enzyme immobilization technologies. To help our customers use next wave biocatalysis to tackle global issues by increasing food supplies, reducing the cost of medicines and ensuring consumer chemicals are safe.
