Key Benefits Description
  • Broad product offering

    Multiple blends of this product are available to ensure optimal performance, whatever your liquefaction conditions.  The various blends contain activities from thermostable alpha amylase, protease or other enzymes. To find the right blend for you, please get in touch with your Novozymes representative. 

  • Operational flexibility

    Whatever your liquefaction conditions, starch dextrinization and viscosity reduction are important. These products work across the broadest range of liquefaction temperature and pH ranges.

  • Increased yield potential

    Corn oil and ethanol yield potential is highest at high-temperature liquefactions in cook. These products contain novel thermostable protease and other enzyme activities. That means they can free more oil and dextrins in liquefaction. The freed oil is then captured in your oil extraction systems. Additional sugars are converted in fermentation for higher ethanol yields. 

  • High conversion efficiency

    Any starch not converted to dextrins during liquefaction is a lost opportunity for your plant.  These products free and solubilize more starch so you get the most from your liquefaction process. The result is better ethanol production and lower overall residual starch.

  • Enhanced yeast performance and process simplicity

    Much of the nutrition yeast needs already exists in incoming grains. Thermostable alpha amylases, proteases or other enzymes unlock this nutrition source in liquefaction. That means enhanced yeast performance. It also reduces the costs and complexity associated with adding urea, ammonia or unnecessary, underperforming enzymes to your process.  

  • Food Grade Availability

    You may need or prefer Food Grade Certification of liquefaction enzymes for your ethanol production. If so, it's available across this product line.

Until now, starch and fat trapped in the fiber matrix of grain were inaccesible to liquefaction enzymes. That meant lost  opportunity and profit for your plant. The novel enzymes in the Fortiva® Hemi family of products work on the fiber matrix. The blend also contains the most efficient grain conversion amylases on the market. Together, these enzymes free and hydrolyze starch and fat for higher corn oil and ethanol yields. Fortiva® Hemi products also offer flexibility across the broadest range of process conditions. The result is a chance to redefine your plant's liquefaction performance.
