C56x product is developed for the fermentation of streams containing cellulose and xylose.

Typical applications for this product include:

  • The fermentation of mixed sugar streams after enzymatic hydrolysis in second generation ethanol processes
  • The fermentation of washed solids streams in second generation ethanol
  • The fermentation of pure cellulose streams

These products combine many of Mascoma’s core technologies into a single product that has a significant impact on the operating economics of second generation ethanol production processes.

Key technical features of these products include:

  • Proven ability to reduce process enzyme requirements by 30 to 60 percent
  • Proven ability to consume xylose at rates equivalent to glucose consumption
  • A robust background capable of operating in the demanding environments typical of second generation ethanol
