Genencor Introduces Improved Enzyme for Ethanol/DDGS Production

21 June 2007

Genencor, a division of Danisco A/S, is introducing a new enzyme product that increases the throughput and the value of distiller’s dried grain with solubles (DDGS), which is produced as a by-product of the corn ethanol process and used as a component in formulating animal feed.

The new enzyme blend—Maxaliq ONE—contains a novel thermostable enzyme that is used as a processing aid to efficiently reduce viscosity of the liquefact and break down phytic acid in grains to create a higher value by-product DDGS.

According to Brian Carter, vice president for grain processing, the Maxaliq ONE blend used in conjunction with Genencor’s Phytase Amylase Liquefaction System (PALS), reduces viscosity and reduces mash phytic acid in the dry-mill process.  The addition of a simple step at the beginning of the process therefore results in efficient liquefaction.
