Wheat based Biorefinery

Optimized milling for high value products

Wheat is a perfect source for high value semi-finished food and feed products, including high quality vital wheat gluten, proteins, glucoses, native or modified starch or DDGS. An optimized milling process generates high value products and tremendously decreases the overall energy consumption of a Biorefinery plant. For example, the separation of fibrous bran from the starchy endosperm reduces the load of non-fermentable solids in the fermentation, distillation, evaporation and drying process by more than 50%. The alcohol production process will be streamlined and, therefore, the capacity will increase. Compared to a “whole grain grinding” process, DDGS drying energy can be reduced by up to 40%.
