Announcement from Novozymes
Novozymes introduces Innova® Apex and Innova® Turbo to the Innova platform. Innova Apex and Turbo are tailored to work in specific fermentation times, enabling ethanol producers to maximize their fermentation process to achieve their desired production targets and business goals.
The Innova brand of yeasts can reduce chemical costs by lowering demand for expensive urea by up 90% and eliminating the need for other fermentation aids like nutritional supplements. Innova Apex delivers up to 2% more ethanol and exceptional robustness to stressors while Innova Turbo’s novel metabolism and stress management in high throughput plants increases ethanol yield by 1.5-2%. Apex and Turbo join Innova® Quantum — together these 3 advanced yeasts provide the industry with the highest level of performance and application to production demands and needs.
Built with Innova yeast strain technology, Innova Apex and Innova Turbo tolerate the toughest fermentation stressors, enabling plants to avoid slowdowns and de-risk production. These new yeast strains are built specifically for today’s industrial fermentation conditions helping ethanol producers make the most of their fermentations, consistently liberating the highest levels of ethanol production.
“Since the launch of our Innova platform in 2018, Innova yeasts have become the most sought-after fermentation solution in the industry,” says Rene Garza, Novozymes Region President, NA and VP, Agriculture & Industrial Biosolutions. “Innova Apex and Innova Turbo are the next generation strain technologies to help our ethanol customers continually improve their operations. Innova Apex and Innova Turbo individually provide the most unique and trusted performance, redefining fermentation opportunities in their operational segments. Each unleashes fermentation performance unlike any yeast in the market.”
