Biocatalysis and Biocatalysts: Introduction

  • Biocatalysis is defined as a chemical process through which enzymes and other biological catalysts conduct reaction between organic components. Advancements in the biocatalysis technique have increased the utility and penetration of biocatalysts in several application areas. Widely used application areas of biocatalysts encompass biopharmaceuticals, agriculture, textile, biofuels, and other life science applications. Over the years, the applicability of biocatalysts in biofuels has been one of the major growth drivers of the market. The value chain of the biocatalysis and biocatalysts industry begins with raw material suppliers of chemicals, fermentation medium, and bioreactors for enzyme production. The next level of value chain comprises enzyme manufacturers and finally end-users who utilize these enzymes for end product development. Additionally, contract research organizations and contract manufacturers are also a vital component of the value chain. Major sources of these enzymes are either microorganisms or plant and animal cells. Some of the widely used biocatalysts in this market include lyases, isomerases, hydrolases, transferases, and oxidoreductases. For instance, hydrolases such as amylases and proteases are utilized in starch processing and the biofuel industry for saccharification and starch liquefaction.
