Syngenta and Plymouth Energy partner to use Enogen corn for 2013 ethanol crop

October 17, 2012 |

In Iowa, Syngenta and Plymouth Energy have signed an agreement to use Enogen trait technology starting in fall 2013. Syngenta states that when using Enogen trait technology there is no need to use liquid alpha amylase enzyme for dry grind ethanol production. The technology improves ethanol production while reducing energy, gas and water usage. Syngenta is currently contracting corn growers to grow Enogen corn. Under the agreement, growers will receive a premium price for each bushel of Enogen grain delivered to the ethanol plant.
