AMG, Inc., a full-service engineering firm serving the ethanol plant engineering industry, has revolutionized the wet-milling ethanol production process. The company has recently received a patent for a new wet-milling process that yields higher-quality ethanol production by-products.
The unique set of technologies and processes of "Food Before Fuel Hydromilling" provides the ethanol plant engineering industry with an additional revenue stream and the ability to make more ethanol for less by increasing the quality and salability of the by-products produced in the production process.
Ethanol processing by-products, or distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) as they're often called, offered limited profit potential due to poor quality. The opportunity to market and sell DDGS was a limiting factor in the growth and expansion of dry-grind ethanol production and conventional wet-milling was limited by its large capital investment requirements.
AMG's process unlocks new profit potential in ethanol plant engineering with an economical alternative to conventional wet-milling that produces value-added germ, fiber and protein in addition to a concentrated carbohydrate fermentation feedstock with no added sulfur compounds. The "Food Before Fuel Hydromilling" process can be applied to all grains with a seed coat.
"The replacement of fossil fuel as an energy source has led to more interest in identifying renewable energy sources," says Alberto Mendez, Jr., PR and Communications Manager for AMG Engineering. "One such source is the use of crop plants to produce ethanol. Until now, the ethanol plant engineering industry has found it difficult to optimize profit potential due to low ethanol yields and poor by-product quality. This will change that formula."
