Commercializing bioethanol production from enzymatic processes fueling the lipases market

Lipases are enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of lipids and are one of the important groups of biocatalysts with biotechnological applications. They are extracted from many species of plants, animals, bacteria, fungi, and yeast. The ones derived from microorganisms are used in various industries, such as textile & leather, bioethanol, Paper & pulp, and wastewater treatment. Lipases are the major enzymes used for commercializing bioethanol production with enzymatic processes. As biological catalysts, they convert the free fatty acids (FFA) and triacylglycerol to fatty acid methyl esters, which generate biofuel. Transesterification is the functional benefit witnessed in the Paper & pulp industry due to the usage of lipases.
