Broin Announces New Ethanol Production Technology.

The Broin Companies recently introduced its new "Broin Project X" (BPX) process, a patented ethanol production technology that, through elimination of a cooking step and use of certain enzymes, saves energy and releases

additional starch content for conversion to ethanol.

According to the company, the BPX process improves protein content and byproduct quality and flowability, potentially increases plant throughput and significantly decreases plant emissions.

"The BPX process may be the biggest breakthrough in starch conversion to ethanol in more than 100 years," said Broin CEO Jeff Broin. "We have already implemented the process commercially in three major U.S. ethanol plants with excellent results."

Broin has filed patents for the BPX process and for the use of enabling enzymes. Novozymes, a developer and marketer of starch conversion enzymes, partnered with Broin in the BPX development process
