Verenium, an industrial biotechnology company, is a global leader in developing high-performance enzymes. Verenium’s grain processing product portfolio includes highly active, broad pH and temperature range alpha-amylase, glucoamylase and xylanase enzymes for fuel ethanol production.

Using proprietary and patented genomic technologies, Verenium extracts microbial DNA directly from collected samples to avoid the slow and often impossible task of growing microbes in the lab. We then mine this huge collection of microbial genes, numbering in the billions, using high-throughput screening technologies designed to identify unique enzymes as product candidates. These are then optimized for commercial use through Verenium’s patented DirectEvolutiontechnology. By combining discovery and laboratory evolution technologies, Verenium has successfully developed and commercialized cutting-edge products for use in industrial processes.
