DEINOVE optimizes Deinococcus strains

DEINOVE, a France-based cleantech company that designs and develops a new generation of industrial processes based on Deinococcus bacteria, has developed strains with especially high performance cellulolytic properties.

DEINOVE has been able to demonstrate that their engineered Deinococcus has the ability to hydrolyze crystalline cellulose paper in approximately 7 days, similar to Trichoderma reesei, a filamentous fungus commonly used to produce many commercial cellulases that are used by many industries and companies These cellulolytic properties of the DEINOVE strain, coupled with its natural xylanolytic properties, allow the optimization of sugar utilization from lignocellulosic biomass and a decrease in commercial enzymes usage, an important cost factor in the production processes.
