Kinetx is a glucoamylase-expressing line of yeasts, especially suited for the challenge of commercial ethanol production. Phibro engineered all Kinetx yeast products for high productivity, reliable performance, and refined fermentation kinetics. Kinetx’s robust strain characteristics, coupled with its consistent expression of glucoamylase throughout growth and fermentation, helps ethanol producers reduce glucoamylase addition.
Kinetx yeast solution products have demonstrated robust performance across a wide range of operating conditions, including:
- Elevated Temperatures
- Organic Acid Infections
- High Gravity Substrates
Kinetx yeast solution products’ performance attributes include:
- Rapid cell growth
- Fast fermentation kinetics
- Targeting up to 80% glucoamylase replacement with specified products
- Producing a potential yield benefit through starch conversion and/or glycerol reduction
PhibroADY is a specially selected Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain, developed specifically for fuel ethanol and beverage alcohol production. PhibroADY converts glucose to pyruvate through the Embden-Meyerhof-Parnas or glycolytic pathway and then to ethanol by fermentation. It can also use fructose, sucrose, maltose, and maltotriose as carbon sources for conversion to ethanol.
PhibroADY has demonstrated robust performance across a wide range of operating conditions, including:
- High temperatures
- High organic acids
- High gravity substrates
PhibroADY performance attributes include:
- Metabolic efficiency that facilitates high ethanol production per mash solids
- Fast fermentation kinetics
- Retaining viability late into the fermentation process
Phibro CertiPhied is a quality control program designed to provide assurance that all Phibro products meet the superior performance standard for biofuels. Each and every lot is tested for fermentation KPI’s to ensure lot-to-lot consistency.
Phibro CertiPhied Program: 3 Tier Commitment
Tier One: Phibro’s Certificate of Analysis (COA) includes yeast quality metrics such as live yeast, fungal and bacterial contamination counts, and sensory measurements.
Tier Two: Each and every lot is also tested for fermentation Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) at specified intervals during fermentation and at drop. In total, nearly 20 properties are examined for each lot. Every KPI has stringent specifications for acceptability, helping to ensure lot-to-lot consistency.
Tier Three: Periodic stress testing of lots is completed to ensure performance under high temperature and in the presence of organic acids.
FortiPhi is a nutritional supplement line of products, which help support yeast health and protects against unseen stressors when added as part of a routine maintenance dose. This can help reduce the occurrence of poor performing fermentation batches and improve batch-to-batch consistency.
FortiPhi products have protective qualities that allow yeast to survive during stress-inducing excursions that create challenging environments. This protection results in higher yielding fermentations compared with no nutrient supplementation.
FortiPhi nutritional products are available in liquid or dry formulations and contain premium inorganic and organic compounds including:
- Inactivated yeast cultures
- Essential minerals
