TransFerm - Model Yield+ - Bioengineered Yeast
Our TransFerm Yield+ product, recently introduced into the grain-based fuel ethanol market, offers advantages similar to TransFerm in regards to reducing the amount of added enzymes. In addition, other significant benefits include reducing the production of glycerol and improving ethanol yields. In commercial-scale trials at a number of corn ethanol producers, TransFerm Yield+ has demonstrated glycerol reductions of over 30 percent and ethanol yield improvements of up to 4 percent.
TransFerm and TransFerm Yield+ are manufactured and distributed by Lallemand Biofuels and Distilled Spirits (LBDS) and jointly marketed and sold by Mascoma and LBDS under an expanded partnership agreement. Recently, the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) approved a new feed ingredient definition for TransFerm Yield+, following a favorable review from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
