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.
