Cereal Process Technologies


Innovation in Engineering and Services

Experience to Sustain Your Investment and Cash Flow


Cereal Process Technologies is the world leader in corn dry-fractionation technology. Our experience includes the design, technology and engineering that successfully built the world’s largest commercial corn dry fractionation plant. CPT also engineered and constructed the fractionation pilot plant at the National Corn to Ethanol Research Center and we are currently constructing a commercial corn mill designed and engineered internally.  Our technology partners have decades of experience engineering, constructing and managing large-scale crush plants and biodiesel facilties.

The strength of our engineering practices and extensive technical knowledge assures our clients the highest quality system – on schedule and within budget. Our commitment to excellence does not end with the completion of the project. We continue to strive for enhancements in engineering and service and we share those innovations with our clients.

CPT can provide complete system services, from assistance with staff acquisition (within or outside the client’s human resources function) to complete system management and operation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Fractionation a Proven Technology?

CPT’s Fractionation Technology has been in use continually for more than 30 years at multiple locations.  In the ethanol industry, our system has run, even through the downturns, since 2007.  It is used commercially in edible corn mills, industrial corn mills, ethanol and the National Corn to Ethanol Research Center.


Will Fractionation Reduce My Energy Costs?

Yes.  Turn off your hammer mills and don’t process the components that do not turn into ethanol.  By removing the non-fermentable components on the front-end, process savings are realized throughout the plant.


What Makes CPT Different?

CPT’s system is different for many reasons.  The proprietary and patented technology is the key, leading to less equipment and a lower capital cost.  Even with less equipment, our technology has the best component separation.  The critical factor in fractionation is to create the cleanest streams in the most efficient manner.


How Can I Purchase A System?

Contact CPT for a free quotation.  Firm pricing can be obtained through a preliminary engineering study based on the size and current infrastructure of your facility.


How Can Fractionation Help Me Stay Competitive?

With CPT Fractionation and a proprietary biodiesel technology, the ethanol plant can become a sustainable operation.  Biodiesel can be produced at a fraction of the cost relative to the rest of the industry because the oil was purchased when the plant purchased the corn.  All CPT does is get more of it out than anyone else.


This is a New Process for our Company.  Is Management and Marketing Assistance Available?

CPT offers management agreements for the system and sales contracts for the biodiesel and other products that are produced.  We have the expertise to make sure that your ethanol plant is profitable and strategically positioned within the industry.
