Enzymes enable higher yields by improving fermentation
As global demand for energy continues to grow at unprecedented levels, bio-refineries worldwide are converting record volumes of biomass into fuel, feed and numerous other bio-based products. Driven by innovation, especially in a challenging economic environment, continuous improvement is a necessity in the ethanol and starch processing industries.
Leveraging our advanced technology, we create high-performance industrial enzymes uniquely suited for grain processing and ethanol production. We are committed to understanding the needs of our customers and to working closely with them to develop optimal solutions. By improving fermentation, enabling higher yields and more flexible process parameters, we help our customers attain greater overall efficiency. Together, we can realize a more sustainable future.
Key benefits of BASF enzymes:
Improve yeast health
Increase fuel ethanol yields
Speed up fermentation times
Provide a greater overall efficiency
Fuelzyme® 650 alpha-amylase is a next generation enzyme for starch liquefaction in the production of fuel ethanol as well as other fuel and industrial-use alcohols.
High activity glucoamylase for fuel ethanol production:
High activity protease for fuel ethanol production:
Fuelpro™ acid protease is a processing aid used for grain-based fuel ethanol production and which works to hydrolyze proteins into amino acids under low pH conditions.
Xylathin® is a highly active xylanase that rapidly degrades xylan to reduce viscosity in cereal-based mashes used in the production of fuel ethanol.
Broad operating pH and temperature range
Fueltase™ Phytase is utilized during fermentation to liberate free phosphorus from naturally occurring phytic acid during production of ethanol.
For use in fuel ethanol production:
Lutropur® MSA is a high purity methanesulfonic acid. Methanesulfonic acid is a strong and odorless organic acid with a unique property profile that distinguishes it from all other acids.
