Date:11/9/2009

PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Genencor, a division of Danisco, has won the national "Sustainable Energy Award" from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) for its Accellerase® family of enzymes for cellulosic ethanol. Yesterday, Robert Davis, Chair of the AIChE Awards committee, presented the award to Landon Steele, who is Marketing Director, Biomass Enzymes and Accellerase® Product Manager, and Aaron Kelley, who is Senior Engineer, Biomass Applications and Accellerase® 1500 Project Leader, at the Honors Ceremony of the AIChE Annual Meeting at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.

The AIChE Sustainable Energy Award recognizes the critical impact of chemistry and biochemistry innovations in developing sustainable energy solutions. The American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) is the world's leading organization for chemical engineering professionals with more than 40,000 members from 93 countries. This is the first year AIChE presented a Sustainable Energy Award at its Honors Ceremony. "It's an honor for Aaron and me to accept this award from our peers on behalf of the entire Accellerase® team," said Landon Steele, who is a chemical engineer. "We're proud to be part of a company that works tirelessly to improve outcomes in carbon impact and natural resource consumption."

"Genencor is pleased to receive recognition for playing a major role in accelerating the commercialisation of cellulosic ethanol and other biofuels and biochemicals that will significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions," said Philippe Lavielle, Executive Vice President of Business Development for Genencor. "We were the first to market with an enzyme for large-scale production of fuel from biomass, and this past April we launched our second-generation flagship product, Accellerase® 1500 as well as three accessory products. We continue to innovate, and plan to release another new product in 2010."
