Cellulosic on the rise: The Digest’s 2017 Multi-Slide Guide to Cellerate technology

June 13, 2017 |

To date, QCCP has produced more than 5 million gallons of cellulosic ethanol via the Cellerate process, which represents 90 percent of total U.S. cellulosic ethanol production (D3 RINs) in the last three years. 

Not long ago, Quad County Corn Processors (QCCP) Head Engineer Travis Brotherson reported a 26 percent increase in ethanol production after a recently-completed trial. The trial consisted of a combination of Cellerate process technology and Enogen corn. Brotherson said this dramatic increase was achieved by realizing an additional 6 percent yield per bushel from converting kernel fiber into cellulosic ethanol, plus a 20 percent throughput increase by combining Cellerate with Enogen.

CEO Delayne Johnson gave this illuminating overview of the technology at ABLC 2017 in Washington DC.
