Mascoma is one of Lallemand’s research and development centers, focused primarily in new industrial biotechnology products. It is a semi-independent group that leads the way, on a global basis, in developing microbial products and applications that enable the efficient and sustainable production of fuels, feed, and food.

Products that emerge from the Mascoma group create competitive advantage for customers using them, by expanding the horizons of what microorganisms can do. Business applications and benefits of these products include higher yielding ethanol production, lower cost enzymes, and savings relating to faster and simpler food and beverage processing.

Mascoma’s 12,000 square foot laboratory space, located in Lebanon, New Hampshire, is the place where no idea is impossible, no limit is definitive, and no product application is out-of-bounds.

Simply put, asking “why not?” is Mascoma’s ethos.
