BASF buys novel feed enzyme from Direvo

LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF recently acquired Direvo’s novel feed enzyme. Direvo applied its expertise in industrial biotechnology to discover, develop and optimize a mannanase enzyme that meets the needs of the feed industry. Direvo’s tailor-made feed enzyme is an optimized and improved mannanase. It displays superior temperature stability and efficacy. This novel enzyme will complement the existing range of feed enzymes that BASF currently markets.

“Enzymes are one of the focus areas of our innovation activities. Direvo’s mannanase is an innovative product with excellent market potential due to its combination of temperature and pelleting stability. This technology package broadens our enzyme know how and enhances our capabilities to make future animal nutrition more efficient and cost-effective,” said Dr Martin Jager, Global Head of Animal Nutrition Business, BASF.
