Lignin Enzymes Needed

Could anyone tell me where I could find enzymes that would be able to 
clip the remaining lignin out of cellulose with an extremely high 
purity.  We are using xylanase enzymes and they do an excellent job but 
we would now like to remove the remain 1-2% lignin left in the cellulose 
with minimal DP reduction of the cellulose.  Enzymes are a good 
alternative to avoid using strong sovents or additional exposure to 
peroxide.

Your help would be appreciated,     Mark De Long
