A sustainable fuels and biomaterials innovator, Edeniq has declared that its own Cellunator milling equipment has been running commercially at the corn ethanol facility of Plymouth Energy from the first quarter of 2012.
A prominent producer of ethanol, Plymouth Energy has shown significant improvement in ethanol and enhanced profitability due to Edeniq’s process.
From the time Cellunators have been installed, the 50 million gallon/year plant of Plymouth Energy has shown a 3% yield boost. These cellunators aid in milling of corn as well as other plant material into more uniform, smaller sizes that are conveniently converted into sugars required for the production of biofuels. Plymouth and Edeniq are partnering in order to implement other proprietary technologies that will offer added revenues or cost savings for the plant.
The CEO and President of Edeniq, Brian Thome stated that these Cellunator installations in Plymouth Energy has proved that the company’s sophisticated technologies help in improving revenues and shows the company’s commitment to fully satisfy its customers.
The CEO of Plymouth Energy, Eamonn Byrne stated that Edeniq’s technologies have significantly helped them in driving profitability and improving revenues. The key factor to promoting sales of ethanol products is a competitively priced product. He added that Edeniq has helped the company to add significant value margins to their present activities.
Edeniq owns and runs a production facility at demonstration scale in Visalia, California that presently converts cellulosic feedstock into cellulosic ethanols and low-cost cellulosic sugars.
