Enzyme catalysed reactions can help to render environmentally harmful process steps in pulp and paper industry more ecologically friendly. For this purpose, enzyme specialists are working together with industrial partners in a project called EnzPap to identify enzyme formulations and conditions relevant for the industry. Through EnzPap, enzyme based process steps in starch conversion, refining, wet end starch treatment and pulp deinking are investigated. Formulations containing amylases, cellulases, proteases, lipases, laccases and xylanases are tested under industrial conditions.
