Corn is rich in calcium, phosphorus, selenium, lecithin, vitamin E, with lower serum cholesterol, but also serve to prevent heart disease, coronary heart disease. Often eat corn, able to absorb excess body fat, both nutrition and health, not weight loss when one of the best dietary choices. It is said that the Indians almost no risk of hypertension and coronary heart because they long to eat corn.
Biomass Program Integrated Biorefineries R&D Advanced Biorefining of Distiller’s Benefits Grain and Corn Stover Blends • Higher ethanol yields • Reduced petroleum use through Fuel ethanol can be produced via National Renewable Energy increased production of ethanol the dry milling process, which Laboratory and Novozymes facilities. • High-value co-products converts corn grain to ethanol. Final integration and pilot scale testing The co-product, distiller’s grain will occur at the Abengoa Bioenergy Applications (DG), is sold as a low-cost, high- R&D facility and Abengoa Bioenergy protein feed source for livestock. Corporation’s York, Nebraska facility This project will enable an improved (55 million gallon ethanol per year). ethanol production process without Researchers are working to undercutting the benefits of high- develop a novel biomass-derived Abengoa Bioenergy R&D and protein feed co-products. process technology that utilizes SunOpta will jointly develop a advanced biorefined distiller’s biomass fractionation technology for Project Participants grain and corn stover blends and the production of ethanol and high- achieves significantly higher value co-products. This technology Abengoa Bioenergy Corporation ethanol yields while maintaining can be readily integrated into existing National Renewable Energy Laboratory the protein feed value. dry-grind ethanol plants. Novozymes, N.A. SunOpta, Inc. The project will demonstrate at Auburn University bench and pilot scale a viable pretreatment process for distiller’s Project Period grains and corn stover to convert residual starch, cellulose, and FY 2003 – FY 2007 hemicellulose to ethanol and high- protein feed. For more information contact: R&D Pathway Gene Petersen DOE Golden Field Office The project will be carried out in Gene.Petersen@go.doe.gov two phases. Phase I will focus on converting residual starch in order EERE Information Center to increase alcohol yields and 1-877-EERE-INF (1-877-337-3463) improve feed product quality. www.eere.energy.gov Phase II will deal with the conversion of distiller’s grains and Pilot scale testing will be performed at the Visit the Web site for the Office of the corn stover to a substrate suitable Abengoa Bioenergy R&D facility.

Energy efficiency and clean, renewable energy will mean a stronger economy, a cleaner environment, and greater energy independence for America. Working with a wide array of state, community, industry, and university partners, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy invests in a diverse portfolio of energy technologies.
