Abstract:The process developed here can be easily integrated into any corn processing facility, especially dry-grind ethanol plants. The solvent extraction step involves only mixing and a filtration/centrifugation step. The filtered extract, after further treatment if necessary to improve protein purity, can be concentrated using solvent stable membranes to at least 250 g/l, which results in a recycle of over 97% of the extraction solvent, thus substantially lowering energy requirements.
