OPTIMASH® DCO+, the latest innovation from the XCELIS™ Ethanol Solutions platform
Back to list
DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences has announced the launch of DuPont™ OPTIMASH® DCO+ for increased recovery of corn oil in dry grind ethanol plants. OPTIMASH® DCO+ provides a flexible solution for ethanol producers to increase corn oil yield without affecting downstream processes or the quality of distillers’ grains.
OPTIMASH® DCO+ is a patent-pending thermostable protease dosed into liquefaction, where it helps to liberate corn oil from the protein and fiber matrix of the corn kernel. Because it is a stand-alone product, ethanol producers can precisely dose OPTIMASH® DCO+ without having to change their alpha amylase.
