Edeniq validates ethanol yield increases of 3-6% with cellulosic ethanol inside corn ethanol plants

10 June 2014

Edeniq, Inc., a biomaterials and sustainable fuels company, announced the successful performance of its PATHWAY Validation Facility. Edeniq’s PATHWAY Platform is a proprietary, integrated platform that produces cellulosic ethanol inside existing corn ethanol plants. Corn kernels contain about 10% cellulosic fiber that currently remains unconverted in a typical ethanol plant. Converting the corn fiber at these facilities is the first step and the fastest path to migrate toward cellulosic ethanol production in the US, Edeniq suggests.

The pilot facility showcases how Edeniq’s patented technologies—the Cellunator and PATHWAY Platform—convert starch and break down corn kernel fiber, releasing cellulosic sugars into the fermentation process, thereby increasing ethanol yield 3-6%. (Earlier post.)

The pilot facility is located at the company’s headquarters in Visalia, California.

Funded jointly by Flint Hills Resources Renewables, LLC, and Edeniq, the pilot facility showcases the PATHWAY Platform and allows ethanol producers to quantify the impact of PATHWAY on yield enhancement and cellulosic ethanol production at their plants.

The PATHWAY Validation Facility was designed and built exclusively by Edeniq engineers. The PATHWAY Platform is currently in commercial testing.
