Ikka Fjord, SW Greenland

Coldzymes develops enzymes from microorganisms isolated from cold environments from all over the World, e.g. from Greenland, Alaska, Svalbard, Antarctica.

Cold-active enzymes from Coldzymes may be used in novel industrial processes that are more

  • Economic, due to lower consumption of fossil fuel
  • Efficient, due to increased specific activity of cold-active enzymes
  • Hygieinic, because food spoilers do not grow at low temperatures

Coldzymes’ enzymes are developed in accordance with the Convention on Biological Diversity.

Coldzymes is a project under the multi-disciplinary and multi-national initiative Greenland Perspective that brings together researchers, civil society, industry and authorities to explore how Greenland’s human and natural resources can be used to develop new technologies, business opportunities and societal models.
