Novozymes to supply enzymes to Dong Energy

Danish biotech firm Novozymes has signed an agreement with DONG Energy to deliver enzymes for the REnescience plant in Northwich, UK - the first full-scale plant in the world to use enzymes to maximise material recycling and biogas generation from household waste.  The enzymes will dissolve all food waste, labels and similar types of organic waste and turn it into a liquid that can be used for biogas. At the Northwich facility, the biogas will be used to generate around 5 MW of electricity. Source: Waste Management World 4/7/2016
