Corn Dry Fractionation – The New Era
Corn Fractionation is the gateway to value-added products and a smaller carbon footprint. With more and more emphasis on co-product enhancement, increased attention is being focused on corn fractionation. Only CPT’s dry corn fractionation technology has been operating continuously for the past seven years in one of the most successful ethanol operations in the country.
In recent years, ethanol plants have begun to extract oil from within the process and have figured out that corn oil can be a very lucrative product for the ethanol plant. CPT takes it one step further, extracting much more oil that is higher quality. With CPT’s technology, ethanol plants now have the capability to diversify their product offering and significantly increase their profits by extracting more than a pound of oil per bushel of corn from the front end of the process, while still extracting DCO from the back end. It is clear that the road ahead for ethanol will be uncertain because of politics and an uncertain mandate. CPT offers a new alternative to diversify and add value to the same bushel of corn.
Fractionation is a process that separates the components of corn prior to the ethanol process. Removing the germ and bran before fermentation provides many benefits to the ethanol plant, including significant energy savings, higher value products and plant diversification. Fractionation allows the ethanol plant to produce a high protein, low fiber DDG that can be fed to all types of livestock – dairy, poultry, swine and fish.
CPT has the capability to deliver a turn-key plant that includes corn fractionation and oil extraction to ethanol plants who understand that the market is changing.
