Biorefining Process Aids

Innovative chemistries, advanced monitoring and control systems, and expert support for your biorefining process challenges.

Meet your challenges head on with our proven solutions.

The promise of biorefineries to produce fuels and other useful co-products is balanced by a number of barriers. The complexity of multi-step separation and purification process steps is one of the biggest challenges, making process efficiency one of the biggest drivers for the biorefining industry.

Solenis offers a variety of innovative process improvement chemistries that can help biofuel producers and oilseed, grain and sugar processors operate more efficiently and profitably. These biorefining process aids are backed by a robust R&D organization that actively pursues innovations arising from customer need and by a cadre of frontline sales and applications specialists who collaborate with customers to design and implement high-value solutions to real-world challenges.

The result is a powerful combination of people and technology to help biorefineries achieve their full potential. For example, our scale inhibitors significantly reduce the potential for scale formation within evaporators, resulting in less frequent and shorter downtime for system cleaning and maintenance. Our corn oil extraction aids enable fuel ethanol plants to significantly increase their corn oil yield by improving the release of oil during mechanical extraction. Our fermentation additives ensure control of harmful bacteria while helping to accelerate fermentation and maximize yield. And our viscosity modifiers enable higher syrup solids, improving production and efficiency.
