Novozymes has just launched its next yeast technology, Innova Lift, for the starch-based ethanol industry. The product follows the launch earlier this year of the yeast platform, Innova, and the first product, Drive.
Brian Brazeau, Novozymes’ Vice President for Biofuels Commercial says Lift targets ethanol plants with long fermentation times, “delivering greater tolerance to common stressors such as high temperature and organic acids.”
Innova Lift expresses a glucoamylase that is two times more effective at converting difficult-to-reach starch. When paired with advanced enzyme solutions, Lift also has the potential to significantly increase ethanol yields, reduce fermentation risks and eliminate costly inputs, while improving performance reliability.
