biological detergents and washing powders
15 of 18
enzymes are also used to..
change foods
16 of 18
advantages of using enzymes in industry..
they're specific so they only catalyse in the reaction you want them to. using lower temperatures means a lower cost. they work for a long time. they are biodegradable.
17 of 18
disadvantages of using enzymes in industry..
some people develop allergies. can stop working by a small increase in temperature. are expensive to produce,
