Cellulase 15,000L (farm & fuel)

An Enzyme Supplies high strength multi-component acid cellulase liquid / powder preparation for the alcohol, bio-ethanol, brewing, and fruit and vegetable processing industries


Cellulase ACx 15,000L is a liquid enzyme preparation for the degradation of cellulose and other viscosity increasing non-starch polysaccharides. It is produced by submerged fermentation of a non-GM strain of Trichoderma reesei. The enzyme is characterized by endoglucanase (endo-1, 4- β-D-glucanase); cellobiohydrolase (exo-1, 4-β-D-glucanase, and β-glucosidase (1, 4-β-D- glucosidase) activity, and works optimally in an acid pH range.

CAS-No. 9012-54-8

This product complies with the recommended specifications of the FAO/WHO joint expert committee on food additives (JECFA), and the food chemicals codex (FCC) for food-grade enzymes.

Typical Characteristics

Activity minimum 15,000 u/g
Appearance – light brown liquid / powder with a characteristic odour Bulk density 1.15g/ml
Fully water soluble


Cellulase ACx 15,000L is available in bulk containers or 25Kg ‘non-toxic’ plastic barrels.


To maintain optimum activity, Cellulase ACx 15,000L/should be stored at moderate temperatures (below 25o C), in the original containers and with the lid closed. When stored at temperatures below 25°C, the activity loss will be less than 10% in 12 months. At temperatures below 10oC, the activity loss will be less than 10% in 2 years.


Inhalation of aerosols from liquid enzymes should be avoided. Open in a well-ventilated environment. In case of contact with skin/eyes, promptly rinse with water for at least 15 minutes. Clean any spillages with low-pressure water hoses, avoiding the formation of aerosols. For more detailed information please refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet for this product.


Cellulase ACx 15,000L has an optimum pH range of 4.5-6.0 (effective range 4.0-7.0).
The enzyme has an optimum temperature range of 40°C to 65°C, with an effective range from 25o-75°C.

Application Scope

Cellulase ACx 15,000L is used in the production of alcohol, bio-ethanol, biogas and beer, and also in the processing of fruit and vegetables. Distillation: Cellulase ACx 15,000L reduces the viscosity of the mash by acting on the non-starch carbohydrates linked to starch. This aids the enzymatic starch hydrolysis, & reduces the mechanical stresses on heat exchangers, pumps and stirrers. Typical dose 75- 150ml/tonne raw material. 
 Biofuel/Biogas: Cellulase ACx 15,000L contains the three primary activities which are optimal for the breakdown of a wide variety of cellulosic feedstocks. To enhance its activity on certain selected feedstocks, the product can have additional enzyme activities such as pectinase and xylanase added according to customers’ requirements producing a truly flexible product solution for all biofuel/biogas needs. 
 Brewing: Where malt quality is less than advantageous, Cellulase ACx 15,000L/assists in the utilization of the wheat and barley, and can accelerate lautering, improve filtration, prevent glucans haze and increase yield extraction. Can be added at the start of the mashing process (dose rate 50-150ml/tonne malt), or at the start of the main fermentation (dose rate 0.5-0.75ml/hl wort). 
 Fruit and vegetable processing: Usually in combination with pectinases, Cellulase ACx 15,000L hydrolyses non-starch polysaccharides, reducing viscosity. Dose range 100- 150g/tonne.

We have greatly benefitted from working with Enzyme Supplies, and we recommend their thoroughly professional service to anyone seeking technical expertise and a reliable, reputable source of industrial enzyme products.”

We have been supplied by Enzyme Supplies for over 3 years and have found their material and service very satisfactory. On one occasion they helped to supply at very short notice when another supplier let us down which could have resulted in very serious disruption.

have been working with Enzyme Supplies over the last twelve months and am extremely grateful for their expert advice, consistent and reliable service and most importantly, the ability to meet the continuing demands of my business, particularly in the area of API sourcing.  They continue to assist me with this key function and are willing to provide additional services when needed which may arise from time to time. I highly recommend using Enzyme Supplies to future customers and appreciate their ongoing support for our business

Enzyme Supplies’ has been supplying us with a range of enzymes for over 3 years…consistently high quality…competitive… efficient…will continue to use Enzyme Supplies as it’s supplier of enzyme

We changed from one of your competitors and now purchase our enzymes from Enzyme Supplies. The improvement in lead time has been fantastic and your service is excellent. Any question has been answered promptly and with a deep understanding of the material you provide, this did not happen with our previous supplier. I have already told you that I intend our relationship will be a long term one’.
