Syngenta, Plymouth Energy to use Enogen trait technology in 2013

MINNETONKA, US: Syngenta has signed a commercial agreement with Plymouth Energy of Merrill, Iowa to use grain featuring Enogen trait technology in 2013. Enogen trait technology eliminates the need to utilize liquid alpha amylase enzyme in dry grind ethanol production. By incorporating Enogen grain into its production process, an ethanol plant can realize dramatic improvements in ethanol production while reducing energy, gas and water usage.

Plymouth will begin using Enogen grain for the first time in the fall of 2013. Syngenta is currently working with the plant to contract with local growers to produce Enogen corn for 2013. Crop Growers under contract will begin delivering the specialty grain after harvest. Enogen grain production contracts require growers follow specific, yet simple stewardship protocols. In return, growers are paid a premium price for each bushel of Enogen grain delivered to the ethanol plant per the contract terms.

“Enogen corn adds tremendous value for both ethanol plants and their local communities. With Enogen corn, ethanol plants not only create greater profit potential for their business, but they help put money back in the growers’ pocket as well,” said David Witherspoon, Head of renewable fuels, Syngenta.
