Maximize yields, reduce energy spend

What is separation?

During wet milling, the starch in the grain is separated from other components. 

Wet milling poses a constant challenge to get the most out of the corn. Mills must:

  • lower their net grain cost 
  • maximize yields and quality of starch and co-products 
  • maximize capacity by debottlenecking equipment that typically fouls or limits grind rates 
  • improve energy efficiency, and reduce costs for process water

Novozymes enzymes are able to improve yields of starch and protein, and reduce energy costs. Maximizing operational efficiency helps the mill handle fluctuations in corn costs.

Get the most out of your corn

How can enzymes help?

By combining enzymatic separation technology with mechanical separation, you can increase separation efficiency. Better separation with enzymes lets you achieve the highest-ever starch and gluten outputs, and significantly better fiber dewatering:

• Boost separation efficiency
• Cut utility spend
• Cut interruptions, raise efficiency
• Increase production capacity
