Gen 1.5 Corn Fiber Processing and High-Value Product Diversification
In the early days of corn ethanol production, sufficient profit could be made by offering a simple mix of ethanol and distillers dried grains (DDG). This strategy allowed a plant to focus on ethanol yield, which was sufficient for most plants’ bottom line.
The Importance of Diversified Feed Products in the Ethanol Industry
Protein is in high demand worldwide. As the demand increases alongside a growing middle class, meeting the demand will require greater availability of feed protein products for the meat animals we consume.
Plants Often Overlook Certain Systems for Optimal Cleaning and Maintenance
While fermenters and evaporators get priority, don’t forget to consider pipes and pumps and ductwork.
