Examples of products and methods of Industrial Biotechnology
Washing and cleaning agents: Biotechnologically produced enzymes are mixed with the detergent and decompose fats, proteins and carbohydrates at low temperatures.
Textiles: the stonewashed effect on denim is achieved using cellulases.
Odor stopper sprays for carpets, shoes or sofa covers contain cyclodextrins, which absorb odors and thus neutralize them.
Creams often contain biotechnologically produced hyaluronic acid for moisture regulation.
Many food and feed additives are now produced biotechnologically, such as citric acid as an acidifier in beverages, natural flavors such as vanilla or strawberry flavor or phytase as a feed additive in pig breeding.
Paper production: enzymes are needed for chlorine-free bleaching of paper.
Vitamins, such as vitamin C and vitamin B2 are produced biotechnologically.
Bioplastics can be found in yogurt cups and carrier bags. Recently were a toothbrush and an airbag made from bioplastics.
