Science company Royal DSM has expanded its product offering of low glycerol yeast technology for biofuels production, introducing eBOOST™ GT and a new enzyme for fibre conversion, eBREAK™ 1000F.

Launched at this year’s Fuel Ethanol Workshop in Indianapolis, US, the new innovations for starch and fibre conversion support DSM’s commitment to deliver solutions for a more sustainable bio-based economy.

eBOOST GT, which has been proven at commercial scale, enables the yield benefits of eBOOST in starch fermentations with up to 60% reduction of externally added glucoamylase, according to the company.

eBREAK 1000F is able to withstand a wide range of challenging conditions to allow high yield hydrolysis for corn fibre conversion and sustainable optimisation of plant economics.

Both products focus on high yield and efficiency in 1G and 1.5G fermentations to handle fluctuating market conditions, achieve maximum profits and ethanol yield, and obtain more valuable D3 RINS by effective fibre and biomass conversions.

“These new product launches are proof of our commitment to creating brighter lives for all,” said Atul Thakrar, president of DSM Bio-based Products and Services. “We are pleased to now deliver a variety of different solutions that enhance production capabilities. DSM works hard to be ‘Doing Something Meaningful’ every day to bring higher performance, better efficiency and more reliability to the biofuels industry.”
