1st Generation Biofuels

MicroBioGen is proudly partnered with Novonesis (previously Novozymes) in the improved production of 1st generation bioethanol. Our highly advanced, robust yeast platform technology has been employed since early 2015, significantly improving the ethanol yields of many bioethanol plants in the Americas.

Through our successful collaboration with Novozymes, we have been able to overcome major challenges faced by starch ethanol plants around the world. For example, our yeast demonstrates stress tolerance at a level the industry has never seen before, while still accomplishing higher ethanol yields. Even while facing multiple stressors, such as accumulating organic acids, high ethanol concentrations and soaring temperatures ranging up to 40°C, our yeast perform exceptionally well.

Our success story does not end here, however. We are continually improving our yeast technology, tailoring it to newly arising challenges, thus bringing endless possibilities to more ethanol plants to maximise their efficiency and sustainability into the future.

The Innova® series of yeasts, built using MicroBioGen’s proprietary yeast technology platform, are known for their reliability, superior ethanol titers and robustness to multiple environmental stressors.

The Innova Series of Yeasts, co-developed by MicroBioGen and Novonesis, include Innova Drive, Innova Lift, Innova Force, Innova Fit, Innova Element, Innova Quantum, Innova Apex, Innova Turbo, Innova Delta. GM versions were modified with genetic constructs by Novonesis. Non-GM versions were developed purely using MicroBioGen's evolutionary technology.
