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.

There's more to grain than starch and with the Avantec® suite of products, you can go beyond starch.  Through total grain conversion they release a nutritional source for yeast, to deliver more efficient fermentations. And they give you the chance to reduce  - or sometimes even eliminate - enzymes and chemicals. These include protease, ammonia, urea, surfactants and yeast nutrients. By reducing inputs and creating more efficient yeast nutrition from your existing grain, Avantec® products allow process simplification.
