Enzymes that Degrade Starch to Ethanol

[2] [6] [10] [30] Enzymes developed for the home laundry market degrade the starch size to ethanol instead of anhydroglucose. The ethanol can then be recovered by distillation for use as a solvent or fuel, thereby reducing the BOD load in the desized effluent considerably.
