Putting our energy into renewables

DSM Bio-based Products & Services continues to build on the expertise in fermentation and biotechnology that DSM has gained over the last 100+ years, to offer enzyme and yeast solutions that improve the production of biogas and biofuel.


DSM has supported biogas producers with products and services for more than a decade. With our enzymes already in use in hundreds of digesters, we have extensive experience with optimizing the biological process in biogas anaerobic digesters.

We work on three fronts:

  1. by optimizing viscosity in the anaerobic digester,
  2. converting more feedstock into biogas and
  3. enabling increased use of readily available feedstock previously considered too challenging.

In addition to 'out-of-the-box' solutions we can offer customers a package of solutions tailored to the specifics of their operation.



We offer a full portfolio of yeast and enzymes for the efficient, high-yield conversion of starch, fiber and biomass to ethanol. 

eBOOST™, for example, is an advanced yeast package for ethanol producers seeking to increase yield and significantly reduce glycerol formation, while BREAK™ 1000F is our latest enzyme solution tailored to converting corn fiber into cellulosic ethanol.

Bio-based building blocks

Many industries are looking for ways to produce more environmentally-friendly products. Bio-based alternatives to standard oil-based chemical intermediates help them take the next step. 

Take succinic acid for example, a chemical used directly in a variety of industry applications and as an intermediate for the production of several polymers and resins. DSM originally developed the patented fermentation technology to produce Biosuccinium®, a bio-based succinic acid now manufactured by Roquette under exclusive licence.

Sustainable Development Goals

At DSM we feel so strongly about doing well by doing good that our company strategy is aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). When it comes to bio-based products and services we’re especially focused on:
