Unrealized potential

You’ve been pursuing an obvious, measurable change in your ethanol plant’s operational performance and profitability.

However, you continue to experience bottlenecks restricting your ability to fully convert the potential of your investment. This results in a loss in efficiency, revenue, and market share

The problem could be your yeast 

One potential stumbling block restricting your plant’s full potential is obsolete yeast. Non-GM yeasts have seen little to no innovation. They are unable to keep up with today’s high capacity ethanol plants and market demands due to:

  • Inability ferment high dry solids or increase speed restricting yield, throughput and efficiency
  • Inability to navigate fermentation stress such as organic acids and temperature excursions
  • Require expensive yeast foods to try and bolster performance

The problems caused by these yeasts’ inability to handle your large-scale production and operational needs hurt your bottom line. This makes it harder to hit your production targets–and to reach your sustainability goals.

A new generation of yeast 

What if you could break through production and profitability barriers to achieve game-changing results? With a new generation of yeast technology unconstrained by obsolete genetics, you can forge a new future for your ethanol plant.

This straightforward, drop-in solution allows you to reduce fermentation complexity, lower by-products, and significantly increase ethanol yield and consistency by unleashing tangible benefits already available to you—all without CAPEX investment the tangible benefits that are already available to you.
