Novozymes opens largest enzyme facility

Novozymes today inaugurates the newest expansion of its Hongda production facility in Taicang, China, making it the largest enzyme fermentation facility in the world.

The facility, Suzhou Hongda Enzymes Co., is located in Taicang, Suzhou, Jiangsu Province, about 50 km north of Shanghai. The expanded capacity will primarily focus on products for the bioethanol industry, with the expansion signaling an investment in both bioethanol and the expanding Chinese market.

Peder Holk Nielsen, Executive Vice President of Novozymes A/S, says: "We believe bioethanol is a good example how biotechnology can make more from less, decoupling economic growth from the use of natural resources.

Novozymes is optimistic about the future of bioethanol and is dedicated to increasing our capabilities continuously in this field. The Suzhou facility is one of Novozymes' strategic manufacturing locations, and this new expansion will enable us to accomplish more."
