About Us

C5-6 Technologies LLC creates bio-based solutions to efficiently break down sugar polymers into five and six carbon sugars. The company is developing the next generation of enzyme solutions for food, energy, and biomedical applications.

C5-6’s microbial and enzyme technology platform has been developed over the course of seven years using US Government SBIR grants and private equity investments. C5-6 was an industrial partner of the University of Wisconsin’s Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center funded by the DOE. C5-6 operations  are currently based in the MG&E Innovation Center in Madison WI.  As part of its enzyme screening and development program the company has commercialized a line of reagent enzymes called CAZyme™ Carbohydrases for use in studying the complex polysaccharides found in food, plant materials, and microbial fermentations.

See below for some of the highlights of C5-6 through the years.
