Direvo announces enzyme blend increases oil recovery

By Direvo | September 09, 2015

Direvo Industrial Biotechnology, demonstrated that its proprietary enzyme blend, trademarked BluZy-P XL1000
increased oil recovery over traditional mechanical separation and chemical addition by over 20 percent.
BluZy-P XL1000, custom designed to disrupt the corn fiber matrix and release oil, was tested
in an extended commercial trial with a major U.S. ethanol producer. Optimized corn oil recovery
is a major margin improvement opportunity for the ethanol industry providing an immediate
bottom-line impact through enhanced coproduct revenues for an average sized plant. Additionally,
ethanol yields are reportedly increased which is being validated through extensive trials with
early adopters. BluZy-P XL1000 can be utilized by ethanol producers with no incremental capital
expenditures.

Jorg Riesmeier, CEO, stated that Direvo, with extensive biotechnical capabilities and enzyme
know-how, has made significant progress to meet its business mission of improving the economic
health of the corn-based ethanol industry. “The industry is focusing on improving the value
of coproducts. We are enthusiastic about how our products will lead to a more profitable and
sustainable ethanol production business model. BluZy-P XL1000 is our initial commercial launch
of new value-added enzymes for the ethanol industry. We are excited about the prospects in
working with our business partners to provide unique and quantifiable benefits to the ethanol
industry.”
