Novozymes in global conference to contribute to climate debate

How to tackle climate change is the hot topic of the global research conference "Innovation in Climate and Energy" that is being held in Copenhagen this week.

The conference is an important step towards the COP15 conference in Copenhagen in 2009. Along with 70 of the world's foremost scientists, representatives from industry, and government leaders Novozymes is participating in the debate throughout the conference.

Novozymes' bioinnovation is one of many ways to tackle the challenge of global climate change. The conference is arranged by the Copenhagen Climate Council and the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) of the University of California.

The outcome of the conference will serve as an innovation agenda for the World Business Summit on Climate Change to be held in Copenhagen in May 2009. Novozymes' CEO Steen Riisgaard says: “This conference is a great opportunity to influence and support the discussions on climate change.

It is a broad and ambitious forum, delving into scientific, political, and business issues, making it very interesting to be part of.”

Searching for innovative solutions On the first day, Steen Riisgaard and two key scientists from Novozymes are participating in exclusive roundtable discussions for a selected set of participants.

The discussions will explore the possibilities for mitigating climate changes through novel technologies, new business models, and policy innovation.

During the two-day conference, Steen Riisgaard will also contribute to the debate by giving presentations about biotechnology and increasing energy efficiency through use of industrial enzymes.

He says: “As I see it, we have only taken the very first steps in exploring how biotechnology can help us save energy and water, too. By using our bioinnovative technologies the world can make more with less, we can improve our use of nature's resources.

As a rough estimate, our products have reduced global CO2 emissions by about 20 million tons in 2007 alone, mostly because using enzymes saves energy in comparison to traditional processes.”
