Valicor to Speak on Transformative Applications of Selective Anaerobic Digestion

DEXTER, MI--(Marketwired - April 19, 2016) - Dr. Jennifer Aurandt, Research and Development Program Manager, will present Valicor's latest findings on a low energy and low carbon emissions anaerobic digestion (AD) system at the 2016 Fuel & Ethanol Workshop in Milwaukee, WI, June 20-23.

Currently, thin stillage process stream are fed to energy intensive evaporators to drive off water and volatile organics while concentrating protein, fat and fiber. Instead of an energy intensive process to treat solids containing water streams, Valicor has developed a patented AD system to degrade process inhibitors such as lactic acid, acetic acid and glycerol while leaving protein and oil concentrated with the effluent stream. In traditional AD system, stillage from corn ethanol plants is digested and the valuable protein and oil are lost. However, in the Valicor platform, the soluble organic acids and glycerol are removed without degrading the protein or oil content. Implementation of the SAD platform will decrease carbon emissions, aid in compliance with the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard, and provide cleaner back-set to the plant.

Valicor Corn Oil Separation Systems return over $100M in annual revenues to ethanol producing customers. Since 2007, Valicor has been an industry leader in the extraction of DCO employing disc stack centrifuges in North America. By providing customers with comprehensive services and preventative maintenance programs, Valicor remains a dynamic partner with ethanol plants throughout North America.
