It’s an exciting time in yeast innovation for the fuel ethanol market. Gene editing technology has allowed for the development of pathway engineering to create yeast strains that produce ever-increasing ethanol yield while also delivering the enzymes needed to help break down sugars. We’ll walk through what it takes to develop a new yeast and how best to safely handle and use this type of technology. We’ll also hear from a plant manager on what it’s like to use a GMO yeast in a dry grind, hot cook operation, the troubleshooting required to optimize its use and how it’s different than using a traditional yeast.
