  20. 20. THIS IS NOT… Novozymes' detergent technical service team explains why including multiple enzymes in a laundry detergent helps to further improve cleaning performance: "As we increase the concentration of an enzyme in a single-enzyme detergent, the cleaning performance improves, but this ultimately reaches a maximum performance plateau beyond which no additional benefit is seen. At this point, cleaning performance can only be further improved by adding new enzymes to the detergent formulation," he says. Of course, the particular blend of enzymes that the team recommends varies because geographical differences in washing conditions such as water temperature and hardness influence the activity of the enzymes. But because Novozymes' customers sell laundry detergents to consumers in so many different countries, the technical service team has the knowledge and equipment to precisely reproduce washing practices from around the globe. Enzymes are proteins that are found in every living organism: man, animals, plants and microorganisms. Nature — including human digestive systems — relies on enzymes to break down proteins, starches and fats. The same types of enzymes can be used in detergents to break down the stains that bind to fabrics. While nature provides an amazing diversity of enzymes, identifying enzyme solutions for a specific problem can be extremely difficult. Most industrial applications place strict demands on the conditions under which an enzyme must operate — pH levels, temperature, and the presence of harsh chemicals all present challenges to enzyme stability and performance. Massive libraries of enzymes, collected from real-world soil and water samples, are just the beginning of the development process. By utilizing specialized knowledge of protein chemistry and advanced protein engineering, new and improved versions of naturally occurring enzymes can be created. Directed molecular evolution can extend the size of these enzyme libraries into an almost infinite number of protein structures designed to meet the extreme demands of modern industrial processes. High throughput screening, based on predictive microscreen assays, is used to identify the best enzyme candidates. For instance, Novozymes has developed a technology platform that allows it to scan the capabilities of more than a million enzymes each week. The most promising candidates are then subjected to more complex testing and additional screening to assure a strong correlation between specific microscreen assays and the real-life application. After a specific enzyme has been identified and the relevant genes isolated, an efficient expressio Case: PROMOTE ENZYMES IN DETERGENTS TO A ”NORMAL MAN”
