Ethanol Proteins – Advanced Process Monitoring

Ethanol plants achieve the best quality ethanol proteins through advanced process monitoring and control.   That means starting with consistent control of corn grinding, cook and liquefaction and fermentation so that each fermentation batch is very consistent in terms of starch converted to ethanol.  Most ethanol plants were designed with simple DCS process control and simple…

Ethanol Protein – Importance of Co-Product Quality

Why is the importance of ethanol protein co-product quality? At least eight ethanol plants have recently installed new process technology that separates higher value corn fermentation protein from whole stillage. This ethanol protein is a combination of corn protein and yeast protein from the ethanol fermentation process. This protein product is destined for growing animal…
