About Think Bioenergy
The United Nations estimates that our world will need to support more than nine billion people by 2050. Energy demand will inevitably grow with population, but we are already facing an urgent need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Is it possible to reconcile these two needs, and provide the world with the energy it needs in a sustainable way?
Novozymes, along with many others, believes that it is, but it’s not something we or anyone else can do alone. To close the energy gap we will need a diverse mix of sustainable energy solutions. Bioenergy will have a crucial role to play in that mix.
This blog will act as a platform where we in the industry can pool our experience and knowledge to move the industry forward faster, ensuring that bioenergy is ready to fill that role.
By focusing on the obstacles our industry faces, and inviting debate on how we can work together to overcome them, we hope to engage everyone who believes that bioenergy is an essential resource in future energy portfolios.

Novozymes: working to make bioenergy part of the mix
Novozymes is the world’s leading supplier of enzymes for the production of ethanol. Novozymes develops enzyme technology that increases sustainability by decreasing costs and increasing yields. In starch-based ethanol we optimize the conversion of grains like corn, barley, wheat and rye with higher ethanol yields, lower usage of grains, faster throughput, lower energy usage and lower processing costs.
Enabled by Novozymes’ innovations, the first cellulosic ethanol plants started commercial production in 2013. We will continue to develop more efficient enzymes to further reduce the total cost of producing advanced biofuels.
Through our activities in the public sphere, Novozymes is working to support the establishment of the long-term policy frameworks our industry needs.
