worldwide environmental conditions have caused widespread regulations
within the international community. Legislations have been passed
regarding regulation of aspects pertaining to Chemical safety and its
impact on health and environment. Rapidly growing population has also
caused alarms about food and energy supplies which rank as
priorities among the basic requirements for a sustainable future.
question is, what can be done to sustain supply of these basic
requirements to the population while minimizing environmental impacts ?
What do we do to eliminate the pollution already being caused by large
scale chemical consumption by the industries ?
answer comes in the form of "Sustainable Bio-Solutions". Industrial
Enzymes work as efficient biocatalysts replacing conventional chemicals
in a multitude of industrial processes. For example, Enzymes require
lower energy and less water to execute the process in main stream
industries such as Textile, Paper and Leather Processing. Industrial
emissions are thus reduced by noticeable levels. We can actually map
the impact application of Industrial Enzymes cause on these industries
by way of far lower effluent load, relatively low energy consumption
Enzymes finding application in Food processing push yields and quality
with less turnaround time for the processes. This results in
higher quality of finished products along with less energy consumption
and emissions. In the Animal Healthcare segment, Enzymes unlock the
nutritional value of the feed and allow the animal to absorb maximum
nutrients from the feed. Here a novel example of how Industrial Enzymes
work to preserve our environment would be the use of Phytase Enzymes,
which enable release of inorganic phosphorous contained in plant based
feeds which otherwise excreted to the environment would have caused
Eutrophication in surrounding areas.
Biotechnology is among the forefront technologies which identified and
worked towards sustainable solutions for our energy concerns.
Technologies have been developed for use of renewable agricultural
wastes as feedstocks for production of Bio-Ethanol using Industrial
Enzymes as efficient catalysts for the Bioconversion and production
processes. Enzymatic processes promise higher yields, low energy
consumption and reduction in carbon emissions.
