ALCGEN™ P10/P15 Acid Protease is an acid proteolytic enzyme which hydrolyze protein under low pH conditions randomly. For simultaneous saccharification and fermentation process in ethanol industry, the enzyme could added directly to the slurry making step or to fermentation tank. With the help of ALCGEN™ P10/P15 Acid Protease, protein will convert to FAN for yeast nutrition and contribute to increase the ethanol yield.
A cost-effective acid protease from Bestzyme generating more Free Amino Nitrates (FAN) for yeast to accelerate fermentation and boost ethanol yield.
ALCGEN® P10/P15 is an acid proteolytic enzyme which hydrolyze proteins under low pH condition. Internal peptide bonds can be first hydrolyzed to polypeptides which supports the peptidases naturally present in cereals converting polypeptides to yeast assimilable nitrogen.
For simultaneous saccharification and fermentation process (SSF) in ethanol industry, the enzyme could added directly to the slurry making step or to fermentation tank.
Hydrolyze protein matrices which bind various fractions
Faster ethanol fermentation rate
Improve ethanol fermentation yield
Provide more essential yeast nutrients
Replace all or part of the alternative inorganic nitrogen like urea
Improve the efficiency of filtration and evaporation
This product can be applied in variety of raw materials including corn, sorghum, wheat, rice and cassava, etc. On the one hand, it can provide more FAN for the growth of yeast. On the other hand, it can also help to release binding starch and increase raw material conversion rate. These two points make positive effects on increasing ethanol yield and getting high quality byproduct DDGS for animal feed.
ALCGEN® P10/P15 can not only help distilleries to boost ethanol yield and harvest high quality DDGS, but also make it possible to running with high dry solids. High gravity fermentation (HGF) provides many advantages for ethanol plant. High viscosity has a range of negative effects across the distilling process. So it is extremely vital for plants to running at lower viscosity. Working together with α-amylase, glucoamylase and non-starch hydrolases, ALCGEN® P10/P15 will tap the maximum potential to reduce mash viscosity and increase productivity with easier nutrition assimilation for yeast and a more energy-efficient, smoother distilling process.
