Laccase – Versatile Enzyme for Various Industrial Applications Currently, the second generation of bioethanol, biodiesel, biohydrogen and methane is obtained from wastes of lignocellulose biomass (Rubin, 2008). This type of biomass can be divided into four groups: agricultural residues, dedicated energy crops, wood residues (sawmill and paper mill discards) and municipal paper waste. Each group presents advantages and drawbacks for biofuels synthesis with remaining poor yields and high production costs. Further improvements in bioconversion of lignocellulosic biomass into biofuels are possible and MetGen Oy proposes a technology platform to increase these yields with reduced costs.
