Yeast, Cream

Innova® Apex

Innova® Apex resets expectations for fermentation performance — the most robust, highest yielding, consistent yeast available in the industry. Developed with flexibility to run your plant your way, Innova® Apex enables you to take ethanol yields to the highest level by combining new Innova® strain technology and robustness, maximizing your investment with conversion efficiency while de-risking your plant to operational upsets. The apex of any operation is to consistently achieve performance targets. Innova® Apex, hit every curve with confidence.

Key Benefits Description
  • Ferments at high dry solids

    Innova® yeasts are capable of fermenting up to 38% solids. That allows you to significantly increase the efficiency and expansion of your production.

  • High-temperature tolerance

    We specifically developed Innova® yeasts to thrive at temperature excursions above 100°F. By using them, you'll diminish downtime, and cut cooling costs.  Innova® yeasts will increase your plant's efficiency and output in any season.

  • High organic acid tolerance

    Innova® yeasts are tolerant to acid levels up to 0.8%, which means you can finish fermentations as bacterial infections occur.

  • Reduces need for additional yeast nutrients

    Innova® yeasts are bred to be robust and have high performance without the need for additional yeast nutrients.

  • Expresses enzymes

    Innova® yeasts express enzymes that have greater debranching and starch degrading activities. The result is a greater conversion for your plant.  

  • Maximizes starch conversion to improve ethanol yield

    Innova® yeasts deliver consistent performance during challenging process conditions. They also express advanced enzymes for greatest starch conversion and improved ethanol yields.

  • Optimal fermentation time

    Innova® yeasts are uniquely designed to work in targeted process conditions. That gives you the flexibility to choose a yeast best suited to your operation.  

Innova® Apex is a genetically modified yeast designed with flexibility to withstand fermentation stress with ethanol high yields . Innova® Apex powers through organic acid and temperature stress while reducing glycerol, taking production and consistency to new levels.
