Meet the future demands of corn wet milling

Produce more with less corn to maximize yields, reduce environmental impact, and improve operational stability through the power of enzymes. 


The pressures of a growing market

The global modified starch market is set to achieve an annual growth rate of 5.3% from 2022 to 2030, reaching $18.9 billion USD1.  

As a wet corn miller, that means you’re continually striving to maximize your plant’s capacity to meet increasing demand.

Balancing output and environmental impact

To maintain a competitive edge, you need to find ways to boost your grind rate and capacity

But balancing that with the equally important push to reduce your plant’s environmental footprint often seems like an impossible task.

Short-term solutions usually fall short

Enhancing output with mechanical and process improvements are short-term solutions with diminishing returns. 

They’re also CAPEX-intensive, carving into your profits and limiting your ability to invest in sustainability initiatives. It’s a vicious cycle that sacrifices long-term competitiveness for marginal short-term gains. 

Boost output sustainably

What if you had a way to increase the starch and protein output of your corn wet milling process while also decreasing your environmental impact? 
With corn wet milling enzymes, you will get more starch and protein from every kernel as well as reducing energy use and CO2 emissions.

Become an industry leader in sustainability

Enzymatic separation enables you to reach your production targets with less corn. And lower solids and water load in the feed house reduces bottlenecks, cutting energy consumption and carbon emissions *.

Save energy

Significantly improved dewatering reduces the amount of steam for fiber drying.

Reduce CO2

Meeting your production goals with less corn results in a potential CO2 reduction of up to 12 kg/metric ton of corn. 

Increase yields and improve your margins 

Better solids separation is the key to freeing up milling time and feed house capacity. With reduced milling time you can plan preventive maintenance while boosting corn gluten meal (CGM) and starch yield.

Get more from your corn and your mill with Frontia® solutions

Frontia® Prime 

Frontia® Prime is a unique enzymatic biosolution that supercharges your corn separation, increasing your corn gluten meal and starch yield while saving energy and reducing your CO2 emissions. 

Frontia® Fiberwash/Jade 

Frontia® Fiberwash is a unique enzymatic corn separation technology that removes water from corn fiber, enabling mills to reduce energy consumption, idle dewatering equipment, and cut CO2 emissions. 

Prepare your corn wet milling operation for the future

For corn wet milling companies, rising prices and supply fluctuations mean that it’s never been more vital to modernize plants to meet the changing needs of the industry. Enzymatic separation is your key to sustainably matching production to demand.

Get the most out of every kernel 

Supercharging separation with enzymes means you’ll produce more corn gluten meal (CGM) and starch from the same amount of corn.

Lead the way in sustainability

Enzymatic degumming reduces moisture in co-products, taking the load off feed house operations. That means less energy for drying and lower C02 emissions.

Free up time for planned maintenance 

Reaching production goals with less corn means more time for planned preventative maintenance. This improves operational stability and boosts profitability by reducing downtime.
