Rossari Biotech forayed into the paper enzymes business in 2006 and with the team of professionals in place, Rossari has made rapid inroads into this industry. Enzymes produced by the biotechnology have found several applications in the different areas of Pulp and Paper industry. The principal enzymes are Cellulases, Xylanases, Hemicellulases, Lipases, Resinases, Esterases, Pectinases, lignolytic enzymes etc. have contributed to the paper industry to reduce their effluent load without any effect on the quality of finished product.
Enzymes offer significant benefits for the Pulp and Paper industry which includes the reduction of energy consumption.(i.e refining), reduction costly virgin fiber usage (i.e by using more secondary fibers), reduction of bleaching costs, reduction of overall production cost, reduction of AOX, reduction or elimination of certain chemicals (Biodeinking) , Improving pulp brightness, yield control of stickies, reduction in downstream and the most important is preservation of environment.
Detergent Enzymes have been used in detergents since 1960’s. The use of enzymes in laundry & automatic dish washing detergents provides consumers with well proven benefits – both in the washing process & in terms of wider environment.
Today the detergent industry is the largest single market for enzymes at 25 - 30% of total sales.Detergents are used to remove the dirt coming in many forms such as proteins, starches and lipids. In addition, clothes that have been starched must be freed of the starch. Dirt can be removed using detergents in water at high temperatures and with vigorous mixing, but the cost of heating the water is high and lengthy mixing or beating will shorten the life of clothing and other materials.
The use of enzymes allows lower temperatures to be employed and shorter periods of agitation are needed, often after a preliminary period of soaking. In general, enzymatic detergents remove protein from clothes soiled with blood, milk, sweat, grass, etc. far more effectively than non-enzymatic detergents.
