Bioinnovation for Sustainable Alcohol - New Enzyme Is A Catalyst That Increases Yield and Fermentation From Less Raw Materials

On 3 April 2012 Novozymes announced the launch of  new product, Novozymes Sanferm® Yield, which enables distillers to produce more alcohol with fewer raw materials.  This is an enzyme that produces more yield and increased fermentation efficiency.  It can cut fermentation time by 10-20%.  Samferm Yield promotes sustainability as businesses can produce more from less material.

Sanferm Yield is a catalyst enzyme that breaks down existing proteins and compounds in grain mashes into fermentable sugars and amino acids. Alcohol yield is increased and the fermentation is enhanced in a short amount of time. Sanferm Yield is ideally suited from rapidly increasing vodka and other distilled alcohols.  It can be used with a wide variety of grain-based raw materials - wheat, corn, rye, triticale, and rice.
