Enzymes Used For Biofuel Production

Compared to conventional fossil fuels, biofuel has emerged as a great alternative when looking for environment-friendly energy sources. The process to convert complex biomass into biofuels requires efficient chemical transformations which in turn is done via enzyme actions.
Biofuel enzymes tend to break down complex carbohydrates, and lipids into simpler sugars and compounds. The use of biofuel enzymes tends to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Let us explore different types of biofuel enzymes to convert biomass feedstocks into other sustainable biofuels.

Types Of Biofuel Enzymes

Are you looking out for the diverse kinds of enzymes used in biofuel production? Look no more as Ultreze has got you back. Here are the types of enzymes used in biofuel production.


Cellulase enzymes break down a complex carbohydrate found in plant cells named cellulose. Cellulose is a significant source of biofuel. By converting cellulose into glucose, it can lead to the production of Ethanol.


The lipase enzyme breaks down lipids into fatty acids. Using the Lipases enzyme, fatty acids such as Methyl esters (FAME) can be used as a biofuel.


By breaking down starch into simple sugars, Amylase enzymes can be fermented to produce ethanol. Some biofuel production requires starch-based products like corn or cassava.


Likewise Cellulases, these are also found in plant cell walls and convert hemicellulases into simpler sugars like Arabinose or Mannose. Later on, these sugars can be fermented to produce biofuel.

Biofuel Enzymes Benefits

  • The use of biofuel enzymes contributes to the efficiency and sustainability of energy resources. But this is not. Here are some other key benefits of enzymes used in biofuel production.


  • The usage of enzymes tends to increase the conversion efficiency of biomass into biofuels like ethanol and biodiesel.


  • Compared to traditional chemical methods, using enzymes is an environmentally friendly process as it operates under milder conditions such as moderate temperature and neutral Ph levels. Besides this, the byproducts are also less toxic.


  • Another benefit of using enzymes in biofuel production is its cost-effectiveness as it enables saving costs in the long term. Compared to traditional fossil fuels, the enzymes used for producing biofuel are economical because it uses diverse feedstocks and the efficiency of production processes.


  • The waste generation is also minimized and all thanks to the use of enzymes in biofuel production as they target only specific components in the biomass which in turn leaves behind fewer waste products.


  • The product quality of biofuel production is also improved post using the enzymes in the production process. The enzymes used result in better-quality biofuels.


  • The enzymes can also be customized to match the features of specific biomass feedstocks which in turn enhances the efficiency of biomass conversion and enables the use of more diverse feedstocks.

Enzymes Used in Biofuels Production

Lipase (Diesozyme-LIP)

Lipase is used for etherification of edible and Non-edible oils to produce biodiesel. 


Cellulase (Diesozyme-CELL)

Diesozyme-CELL play a key role in the enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulosic polymers to release monomeric fermentable sugars to produce biofuels.

Lipase Enzymes For Biodiesel Production

Lipase enzymes are constantly used in transesterification as they offer several environmental and economic benefits. Lipases are enzymes that help in breaking down ester bonds especially the long-chain triglycerides to generate free fatty acids, diglycerides, monoglycerides as well as glycerol. Lipases have been divided into three categories depending on their specificity as follows: 1,3-specific, fatty acid-specific and non-specific lipases. A 1,3-specific lipase discharges fatty acids from positions 1 and 3 of a glyceride and then breaks down the ester bond in these positions. In certain specific conditions, lipases are also involved in other catalyses such as acidolysis, alcoholysis, aminolysis, esterification and transesterification.
