Key Benefits Description
  • Increase ethanol yield 2% vs. the industry’s leading yeast*

    Operating in a wide variety of fermentation times, Innova® Element excels in fermentations >54 hours and is a drop-in solution capable of converting the most sugar to ethanol versus all other GM yeasts. *Innova® Force
  • Power through compounding fermentation challenges caused by high temperatures and organic acid excursions without sacrificing yield

    Gain peace of mind knowing Innova® Element can handle temperature excursions, up to 36⁰C/98⁰F, and 0.6% lactic acid, reducing variability and process upsets.
  • Expand throughput by fermenting high dry solids

    Developed to withstand the rigor of heavy-duty, hard-running plants, Innova® Element can ferment up to 36% dry solids while tolerating high ethanol titers >15% w/v in fermentation.
  • Improve DDGS quality with lower glycerol

    Rebalancing yeast energy, Innova® Element reduces glycerol production by up to 20%, contributing to ethanol increases and improving DDGS quality.
  • May reduce your need for yeast nutritional supplements

    While many yeast use urea and yeast food to support fermentation, Innova® Element may significantly reduce the need for urea and eliminate the need for yeast food.

Innova® Element is a genetically modified yeast designed for fermentation processes greater than 54 hours. It delivers industry-leading yields and robustness so you can confidently run your plant. Innova® Element produces a high-quality GA with advanced de-branching activity and a fungal alpha-amylase to deliver the lowest residual starch.
