Novozymes launches new yeast, fiber products

Novozymes is launching two new yeast and fiber products that aim to boost ethanol plant efficiency, counteract production challenges, and allow facilities to further diversify their product offerings. The company will introduce the new products at the 2021 International Fuel Ethanol & Workshop in Des Moines, Iowa, on July 13-15.

Innova Element is the latest addition to Novozymes’ Innova yeast platform. Element specifically targets ethanol plants seeking the highest level of starch and glucose conversion.

Brian Brazeau, Novozymes president for North American and vice president of agricultural and industrial solutions, Americas, explains that Element increases ethanol yields by 2 percent on when compared to an industry-wide average without sacrificing any of the robustness that producers can come to appreciate about the Innova yeast platform.
