Liquefaction

From starch to dextrins – the unsurpassed performance of our liquefaction enzymes and our unmatched industry expertise combine to optimize the front-end processes of ethanol production.

Liquefaction From starch to dextrins
During liquefaction alpha-amylases are needed to reduce dextrin chain length and mash viscosity prior to saccharification and fermentation with yeast. Novozymes Avantec® and our Liquozyme® products liquefy and prepare the corn for optimal fermentation, resulting in higher yields and reduced operating costs.

With custom product strengths to meet your plant’s specific needs, our enzymes allow you to power up your liquefaction with these benefits:
• Greater ethanol throughput and yield
• More efficient starch conversion 
• Rapid viscosity reduction 
• Decreased energy consumption

Novozymes offers ethanol plants much more than just the best enzymes in the industry. Our dedicated and knowledgeable support teams, customized training programs, and reliable customer service and delivery enable you to stay ahead of the competition and realize your potential.
