Royal DSM broadens biofuels product offering with two launches at FEW

Netherlands-headed Royal DSM, a global science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials, has expanded its product offering of low glycerol yeast technology for the biofuels industry with the introduction of "eBOOST" GT and a new enzyme for fiber conversion, "eBREAK" 1000F, at the 35th International Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo (FEW) that was recently held in Indianapolis, United States (US).

As a global science-based company, Royal DSM says that it is committed to delivering new solutions for a more sustainable, bio-based economy. This includes two new innovations for starch and fiber conversion:

  • “eBOOST” GT, which has been tested and qualified at commercial scale, enables the robustness and yield benefits of “eBOOST” in starch fermentations with up to 60 percent reduction of externally added Glucoamalyse (GA).
  • “eBREAK” 1000F tolerates a wide range of challenging conditions to allow high yield hydrolysis for corn fiber conversion and sustainable optimization of plant economics

DSM scientists at the company’s biotechnology centers in Delft, Netherlands, and Elgin, Illinois, United States worked closely with customers to develop the new products and solutions.

Both products focus on high yield and efficiency in first generation (1G) and 1.5G fermentations in order to handle fluctuating market conditions, achieve maximum profits and ethanol yield, and obtain more valuable D3 Renewable Identification Numbers (RINS) by effective fiber and biomass conversions.

These new product launches are proof of our commitment to creating brighter lives for all. 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 commented Atul Thakrar, President of DSM Bio-based Products and Services.
