How Biofuels Can Supercharge the EU's Drive to Carbon Neutrality

Ethanol industry drone applications are soaring far beyond aerial photography. Plant personnel are now using the technology both around and inside their facilities. They're even gaining experience with technical confined space inspections.

While most ethanol producers aren't actively pursuing DCO yields over 1.2 pounds per bushel, the pursuit of ultra-high, or even theoretical maximum yield, is as compelling as it is consequential. Both the process and the market must be considered.

New and improved yeasts—more robust and effective than ever—are helping ethanol producers optimize today while adapting for tomorrow. With input from producers, these enhanced fermentation products are being designed for superior fit and flexibility.


The Xcelis Yeasts platform from IFF offers tailor-fit yeast and yeast blends to address ethanol producer needs—even as they vary over time.

A patented combination of peracetic acid and hydrogen peroxide, blended in line and added to the fermenter via the mash cooler, appears to be effective in preventing ethanol loss from biofilm formation. Study results show multiple benefits.
