Title:New Technologies for Producing Food, Fuel and Industrial Products from Corn
Author(s):Singh, Vijay
Subject(s):Agricultural innovations
Abstract:Conventional dry grind corn process is used for producing ethanol and distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS); a coproduct primarily used as ingredient in ruminant diets. In last eight years ethanol production from corn has increased 300% in the US. Recently, several dry grind processes have been developed that improve fermentation efficiency, increase final ethanol concentration and recover marketable coproducts for food, nutraceutical and industrial uses. Some of these processes involve corn fractionation prior to fermentation for recovery of additional coproducts, others involve enzymatic reactions or new unit operations to improve efficiency and reduce operating cost. DDGS fractionation technologies have also been developed to increase its nutritional content and recover fiber as a coproduct.
