Key Benefits Description Details Safety
  • Access low carbon fuel markets

    Unlock the full value of every corn kernel by enhancing fiber ethanol generation with industry-leading yields.
  • Enhance corn oil recovery

    by unlocking up to 10% more corn oil from the fiber matrix, enabling it to be used for animal feed or sustainable biodiesel production.
  • Reduce residual starch

    by 18% to gain further performance on ethanol generation.

Fiberex® F2x is an enzymatic solution used for in process kernel fiber converstion.  This drop in solution reduced the barrier to low carbon fuel markets by enabling producers to generate cellulosic ethanol without the need for CAPEX intensive projects or potential risk to back end viscosity.

Added to fermentation in existing first generation ethanol plants, Fiberex® F2x breaks down fiber found in corn kernel to significantly enhance performance benefits.  In breaking down the tough fiber matrix, this enzyme blend increases fiber conversion for celluloisc ethanol produced in an SSF process.

Fiberex® F2x is your first choice as an enzymatic solution used for in-process corn kernel fiber conversion. This drop-in solution reduces the barrier of entry to Low Carbon Fuel Markets by enabling producers to generate cellulosic ethanol without the need for CAPEX intensive projects. Added to fermentation in existing first-generation ethanol plants, Fiberex® F2x increases fiber conversion for cellulosic ethanol produced in-process, by utilizing enzyme activities that target the roughly 60% of fiber that is hemicellulose. This blend is uniquely able to break down important layers of the fiber that enhance cellulase conversion and result in more fiber conversion while releasing more corn oil and residual starch.

 Possible effects

Please follow the precautionary handling recommendations below:

  • Avoid breathing dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray
  • In case of inadequate ventilation wear respiratory protection
  • IF INHALED: Remove person to fresh air and keep comfortable for breathing
  • If experiencing respiratory symptoms: Call a POISON CENTER or doctor/physician
  • Store in a dry place. Store in a closed container
  • Dispose of contents/containers in accordance with local regulations
