Yeast for Animal Feed Processing and Cellulosic Ethanol Production




What they say about it
Mascoma Grain Technology (MGT) is a genetically modified yeast product that was designed as a “drop-in substitute” for conventional fermenting yeast used in the production of corn ethanol fuel. According to Mascoma Corporation, the maker of MGT, the product lowers production costs for ethanol makers by alleviating the need for expensive enzymes required for ethanol production.

How they say it works
Genetically modified yeast fermentation produces ethanol from cellulosic feedstock and FDA-approved animal feed as a byproduct. Part of Mascoma's success lies in their consolidation of the previous fermentation and hydrolysis steps (necessary to separate the cellulosic sugars from biomass) into a single process.
