Cellerate® Can Help Ethanol Producers Access New Markets

Cindy Zimmerman

Cellerate® process technology provides dry grind ethanol producers the opportunity to move away from low value commodity fuels and dried distillers grains (DDG) and into high value D3 RINs and DDG markets.

As ethanol plants seek new ways to be more competitive, Cellerate® process technology offers an opportunity for ethanol producers to access new markets and increase ROI potential for co-products, which has been demonstrated by the success of Quad County Corn Processors (QCCP).

According to Syngenta, performance results achieved at QCCP to date through combining Cellerate with Enogen® corn include: a six percent yield increase plus a 20 percent throughput increase combined for a 26 percent increase in total ethanol production; higher protein feed co-products; and improved oil yield.

In addition, the technology has been producing D3 RIN-qualifying cellulosic ethanol on a commercial scale at QCCP since 2014. QCCP has generated nearly 40 percent of all D3 ethanol RINs produced over the past three and one-half years.

Producers can find out more in a webinar hosted by Ethanol Producer Magazine at 2 p.m. Central on Thursday, April 26. Syngenta and QCCP will discuss how dry grind ethanol plants can leverage corn kernel fiber to be more competitive.
