DuPont Industrial Biosciences has announced the launch of SYNERXIA® THRIVE Fermentation System to help ethanol producers increase yields.

“With the new DuPont™ SYNERXIA® THRIVE Fermentation System, ethanol producers can now expect up to 4 percent higher ethanol yields in dry grind fuel alcohol facilities, when compared to conventional systems,” said Joseph DeSalvo, North America regional industry leader, DuPont Industrial Biosciences. “The launch of SYNERXIA® THRIVE Fermentation System gives ethanol producers the opportunity to integrate an unparalleled fermentation system into their business.”

DuPont™ SYNERXIA® THRIVE Fermentation System consists of a new active dry yeast (ADY), SYNERXIA® THRIVE ADY and SYNERXIA® THRIVE LC, a glucoamylase liquid complement. The new system blends the right combination of yeast and enzymes to deliver up to 4 percent additional ethanol versus a conventional yeast and glucoamylase combination.

SYNERXIA® THRIVE ADY incorporates a patent pending, carbon-efficient pathway that redirects a portion of the carbon that would go into CO2 and glycerol into ethanol production. In lab and plant results, the SYNERXIA® THRIVE Fermentation System outperformed conventional yeasts during thermal excursions and demonstrated increased robustness in the presence of organic acids.
