Get faster and more efficient

Improve operational efficiency and move your business forward by accelerating fermentation, increasing yields, and reducing consumption of energy and natural resources.

Our OPTIMASH® range of products consists of a diverse line of accessory enzymes including:

  • Xylanases - hydrolyze the arabinoxylans in the corn fiber making previously unavailable starch accessible. Alpha-amylases can now act on this starch and allow it to be converted to fermentable sugars.
  • Proteases - for increased corn oil and ethanol yield paired with a lipase for superior foam control.
  • Phytases - efficiently hydrolyzes phytate under ethanol fermentation conditions, generating inositol, an important yeast nutrient while maximizing the level of free phosphate in residuals (DDGS).
  • Trehalases - for hydrolyzing extracellular trehalose to glucose during the SSF process, which can then be converted into additional ethanol.
