Novozymes A/S

Recommended Posts


Novozymes is the world leader in bioinnovation. Our business is industrial enzymes and microorganisms.

Enzymes are proteins, and in nature they initiate biochemical reactions in all living organisms. It is enzymes that convert the food in our stomachs to energy and turn the falling leaves in the forest to compost.

Novozymes nds enzymes in nature and optimize them for use in industry. In industry, enzymes replace chemicals and accelerate production processes. They help our customers make more from less, while saving energy and generating less waste.

Enzymes are widely used in laundry and dishwashing detergents where they remove stains and enable low-temperature washing and concentrated detergents.

Other enzymes improve the quality of bread, beer and wine, or increase the nutritional value of animal feed. Enzymes are also used in the production of biofuels where they turn starch or cellulose from biomass into sugars which can be fermented to ethanol.

These are just a few examples as we sell enzymes to more than 40 different industries.

Like enzymes, microorganisms have natural properties that can be put to use in a variety of processes. Novozymes supplies a range of microorganisms for use in agriculture, animal health and nutrition, industrial cleaning and wastewater treatment.

Wer ist denn noch so bei Novozymes dabei?


Bin August 2019 eingestiegen, da ich erwarten würde, dass Enzyme mehr und mehr bei der Lebensmittelproduktion und bei Reinigungsmittel zum Einsatz kommen sollte (die netten Werbefilmchen und Dokus klangen zumindest überzeugend). Allerdings für meine Strategie mit einer kleineren Position wegen des langsamen Wachstums und der langen Seitwärtsbewegung.


Etwas spät, aber habe doch nochmal genauer die 1Q 2020 Zahlen angeschaut. Schön mal ein zweistelliges Wachstum zusehen. Was denkt Ihr: Eintagsfliege oder Nachhaltig? Jahresaussicht war im Januar schließlich bei 1...5%



April 29, 2020 Interim report for Q1 2020 

Strong first quarter results across key financial parameters; agile organization enables Novozymes to meet customer demand despite COVID-19 disruptions. 2020 outlook remains suspended.

Organic sales growth of 10% in Q1 2020. Household Care +11%, Food & Beverages +11%, Bioenergy +11%, Agriculture & Feed +8%, Tech. & Pharma -10%. EBIT margin 28.9%. Free cash flow before acquisitions DKK 0.8 billion


Letzte Woche auch wieder eine Acquisition für 80M€: Novozymes acquires PrecisionBiotics Group to advance its business within human health
