Enogen® corn enzyme technology enables process flexibility that results in increased profit potential for ethanol producers. Using modern biotechnology to deliver robust alpha amylase enzyme directly in the grain, Enogen corn eliminates the need to add liquid alpha amylase, reduces production costs and improves process efficiency.
With Enogen grain, your ethanol plant can
Syngenta has licensed growers to produce Enogen grain to support 20 ethanol plants in eight states—from California to Ohio—representing approximately 1.5 billion gallons of ethanol capacity. Syngenta plans to continue expanding the footprint for this game-changing innovation.

After your ethanol plant has signed a commercial agreement, Syngenta works directly with local corn growers to contract the necessary Enogen grain. Only 15 percent of the total corn grind needs to be Enogen grain in order to achieve the desired results. Growers are paid a per-bushel premium above market rates for supplying your plant’s alpha amylase enzyme.
Syngenta works closely with ethanol plants every step of the way to make the conversion from liquid alpha amylase to Enogen grain a success.
Cellerate™ process technology can be incorporated into your plant's existing infrastructure. With this innovation, the biofuels industry now has the technology available to create 2 billion gallons of additional cellulosic ethanol – all from the same kernel of corn.
Cellerate™ process technology converts corn kernel fiber into cellulosic ethanol in a revolutionary procedure, increasing an ethanol plant's production. With Cellerate, ethanol producers are able to extract more ethanol from the same kernel of corn.
Cellerate enables your ethanol plant to leverage its existing infrastructure to produce cellulosic ethanol and significantly increase throughput. Without changes to the conventional starch ethanol process, Cellerate offers advantages to your plant including pre-treatment in the fiber that allows whole stillage processing without the requirement to separate all the fiber and starch.
Cellerate enhanced by Enogen:
The Ethanol Grower Advantage is a platform designed to increase corn yields and profitability for growers, improve grain quality and help ethanol plants produce more ethanol per bushel. With the Ethanol Grower Advantage, ethanol plants are able to run their businesses more effectively through easier, local sourcing of high-quality grain.
The Ethanol Grower Advantage can help you be more successful.

Bottom-line Savings at Bonanza Bioenergy“Enogen corn has created true value for the Bonanza Bioenergy ethanol plant operation.
We saw a number of benefits with Enogen grain such as enhanced breakdown of starch in our fermenters,
and in energy and water savings. It goes directly to our bottom line.
We’re in a very competitive business and we feel this product is a
powerful contributor in saving us pennies, which add up quickly over the
course of a year. We’re really excited about Syngenta’s
commitment to continue to introduce new technology that ties processing with the producer.

Improving Efficiency with Quad County Corn Processors“Quad County Corn Processors began using Enogen corn in a trial in 2009 to improve plant profitability. Travis Brotherson, QCCP plant engineer, recalls the immediate change in the ethanol plant’s production after adding Enogen grain.
“The plant smoothed out so much,” he said. “The alpha-amylase enzyme thinned out our liquefactions and we could actually hear the machinery begin to run smoother. It was an exciting time; we immediately saw the opportunities we had for increasing our alcohol yield and throughput, while reducing our use of energy.”
Prior to using Enogen grain, QCCP was spending approximately half a million dollars annually on liquid alpha amylase enzyme. Now that money can go to local farmers, who, by growing Enogen corn, have become enzyme suppliers.
