Epicellulyse XT Flow Chart
Episome Biotechnologies provides eco-friendly enzyme solutions to replace chemicals for a sustainable future.
Epicellulyse XT, enables use of paper mill sludge (waste) for biogas/renewable energy and organic fertiliser production.
Episome's novel technology, Epicellulyse XT, enables use of paper mill sludge (waste) in biogas/renewable energy and organic fertilizer production. Previously paper mill sludge was not suitable for biogas production due to its cellulose content. The material caused crusting, viscosity and mixing problems in biogas digesters and hard to digest cellulose did not release enough nutrients for biogas production. One possibility was to use commercial cellulases, but their costs were not feasible for such an operation. Epicellulyse XT is used in pretreatment of paper mill sludge and making it ideal for biogas process. The secret sauce is our novel enzyme, Cellurise a whole cell biocatalysts which enables this technology. Every year globally, 3B USD is spent for disposal of paper industry waste and related fines&fees. For a medium size plant this cost is nearly 7M USD. 3B USD cost is converted to 9.5B USD profit for the industry with our technology! Our solution Epicellulyse XT has a reasonable CAPEX, very little OPEX and the most important, we earn money, all others burn money! Our payback time is always less than 5 years and we contribute to nature so much! Epicellulyse XT helps the companies to reduce their carbon footprint.
