July corn use for ethanol production up 7% over June

September 8, 2016 |

In Washington, the USDA said in its September Grain Crushings and Co-Products Production report that corn consumption for ethanol during July was up 7% on the month at 455 million bushels and 2% higher than during the year before. Of the total ethanol produced from corn, 89.5% was produced using dry milling while the rest […]

QCCP says Cellerate process technology and Enogen corn showed 26% ethanol increase

QCCP says Cellerate process technology and Enogen corn showed 26% ethanol increase

August 17, 2016 |

In Iowa, 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 […]

Engineered high energy fuel from waste: The Digest’s 2016 Multi-Slide Guide to Cornerstone Resources

Engineered high energy fuel from waste: The Digest’s 2016 Multi-Slide Guide to Cornerstone Resources

August 4, 2016 |

Cornerstone Resources develops and deploys waste management processing technologies that re-purpose a broad spectrum of organic wastes. Cornerstone adds that it’s BurCell system is a disruptive vacuum aided thermal decomposition process which converts pre-sorted MSW and other feedstocks into a consistent, homogenous process engineered cellulosic product. It is uniquely differentiated from existing technologies competing to provide MSW recycling, landfill […]

Cornell researcher discover cellular strategy to produce biofuel through microbes feeding on CO

Cornell researcher discover cellular strategy to produce biofuel through microbes feeding on CO

August 1, 2016 |

In New York state, Cornell University biological engineers have deciphered the cellular strategy to make the biofuel ethanol, using an anaerobic microbe feeding on carbon monoxide. To make biofuel from inorganic, gaseous industrial rubbish, the researchers learned that the bacterium Clostridium ljungdahlii responds thermodynamically – rather than genetically – in the process of tuning favorable […]

Syngenta’s Enogen corn used in more than 20 ethanol plants in the US

Syngenta’s Enogen corn used in more than 20 ethanol plants in the US

July 27, 2016 |

In Switzerland, Syngenta says that its Enogen corn is used at more than 20 dry grind ethanol plants across the US. The plants represent about 10% of national ethanol production volume. Combined with its Cellerate partnership that allows for cellulosic ethanol production, the two technology solutions can help plants boost ethanol production by more than […]

Chinese corn stocks could drive further demand for US corn and DDGS

Chinese corn stocks could drive further demand for US corn and DDGS

July 11, 2016 |

In China, as much as 20% of the country’s corn reserves—the total of which represent half of the world’s corn reserves—are likely to be spoiled and unfit for human consumption which has led to a spike in imports over more than 1 million metric tons in both April and May predominantly from the US and […]
