In Germany, 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.
