Sustainability comes naturally
The world’s population is growing, but its natural resources are not. This disparity has prompted a worldwide call to action to find sustainable solutions capable of easing the burden on our planet and getting the most out of the resources we have available.
Novozymes’ innovative biological solutions are applied to a wide range of products, from detergents and biofuelsLiquid fuels produced from primary crops or biomass such as sugarcane, grains, agricultural residues, algae and household waste. They are typically used to replace gasoline and diesel in transportation. One of the advantages of biofuels is that they are the only existing liquid alternative to fossil fuels. to agricultural crops and food-processing aids. Our products help reduce waste and save energy, water and raw material use.
Sustainability is a key characteristic of biological solutions and is imbedded in the way we do business. In 2017 alone, Novozymes’ solutions helped customers save an estimated 76 million tons of CO2. That is equivalent to taking 32 million cars off the road.
World-class innovations deliver results
We continuously search for new and better bioinnovations – and research is at the heart of everything we do.
Each year, we put 13% of our revenue back into R&D, to turn biology into business opportunities across industries. 23% of our employees work in R&D, and in 2017 alone we launched eight new innovations.
