Novozymes enzymes confirm 6% production edge

August 11, 2014 |

In Nebraska, Novozymes’ enzymes will allow ethanol producers to unlock more energy from each corn kernel, producing 5% more fuel while using 8% less energy.

Said Delayne Johnson, chief executive of Iowa ethanol producer Quad Corn Processors, the company now gets 6 percent more ethanol per corn bushel, and that the star engineer in charge is working on another development that might yield another 5 percent. The new processes involve no new net energy expenditure, Johnson said.

“Our opportunities in the Midwest are far greater than the average American realizes. We operate biorefineries, not just ethanol plants, and there is a lot more going on than people know about.”
