In the past, the pulp and paper industry has had only moderate success using previous generation xylanases because of their ineffectiveness in the harsh processing conditions of the pulp mill. Luminase® PB-100 enzyme not only substantially reduces the need for bleaching chemicals, the enzyme remains active over a wider range of temperature and alkalinity (pH) than previous enzymes so it can be utilized by more mills. Luminase® enzyme also provides greater operational efficiencies, as it works faster than previous enzymes, thus requiring less retention time. In addition, Luminase® enzyme is effective for most types of pulp, thereby expanding the utility and benefit to the mill. Source
Custom-made enzyme that is designed to increase the accessibility of the lignin in pulped wood to the standard bleaching chemicals. This substantially increases bleaching efficiency and thereby decreases the amount of bleaching chemicals and time required.
