Verenium Announces New Enzyme For Ethanol Production

Verenium Corporation, a pioneer in the development and commercialization of high-performance industrial enzyme solutions, today announced that it will now market and sell DELTAZYM(R) GA L-E5, a high performance enzyme for the saccharification of liquefied starch in the fuel ethanol production process. The DELTAZYM(R) GA L-E5 enzyme has demonstrated high ethanol yields at industrial scale using multiple substrates including corn, milo, barley, wheat and cassava.

"Verenium is pleased to be able to enhance our starch processing product offering with this best-in-class glucoamylase enzyme for fuel ethanol production," said Janet Roemer, Verenium's President and Chief Operating Officer. "Customers using both Verenium's Fuelzyme(R) alpha-amylase and DELTAZYM(R) GA L-E5 have reported increased ethanol yields due to demonstrated synergies between the two enzyme products providing fuel ethanol processing plants with superior cost-performance benefits."

Verenium estimates the addressable global market for DELTAZYM(R) GA L-E5 for fuel ethanol production to be approximately $200 million annually.
