DuPont Industrial Biosciences Launches New DuPont™ SYNERXIA® Fermentation System

New System Will Help Ethanol Producers Increase Profits and Yields While Lowering Residual Sugars 


WILMINGTON, Del., June 20, 2016 – Today, DuPont Industrial Biosciences announced the launch of its DuPont™ SYNERXIA® Fermentation System, a ground-breaking approach to fermentation that will help ethanol producers improve their yields by up to 2 percent, while lowering total sugar levels at drop by up to 25 percent.

“We believe that the best technology delivers performance and is easy to use,” said Troy Wilson, global business leader, Grain Processing.  “The SYNERXIA® Fermentation System launched today is designed to do just that – deliver better performance and take the guesswork out of dosing glucoamylase with bioengineered yeast.”

The system includes SYNERXIA® PRIME ADYT, a bioengineered yeast paired with the world’s only commercial dry trehalase. Compared to cream yeast, DuPont’s active dry yeast requires no special storage or handling.

The system also includes SYNERXIA® PRIME LC, a new glucoamylase blend that delivers three times the debranching activity of conventional glucoamylase. The glucoamylase included in the SYNERXIA® Fermentation System liberates more glucose for the yeast to ferment, improving ethanol yield.

Additional benefits include 20-25 percent lower sugar levels at drop and full end-to-end onsite technical support.

Representatives from DuPont Industrial Biosciences will be on hand at the Fuel Ethanol Workshop (FEW) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, June 20-23 to discuss the new offering with customers.  Attendees also are encouraged to listen to Vivek Sharma, one of the developers of the system, on the FEW Innovation Stage Tuesday, June 21, at 2:40 p.m. CT.
