FEC Solutions introduces Corn Oil ONE to remove FFAs, moisture
FEC Solutions announced June 6 at the Fuel Ethanol Workshop in Minneapolis that it is partnering in the development and commercialization of a new technology system designed to remove free fatty acids and moisture from corn oil.
"With expectations that 80 percent of ethanol plants will be extracting corn oil from their DDGs by the end of 2012, the time has come to focus on adding value to the corn oil stream," said Joe Riley, general manager of FEC Solutions."Ethanol plants can increase demand for their corn oil while end users of corn oil can find value through decreased free fatty acids and moisture."
The system, trademarked Corn Oil ONE, is designed for installation at ethanol plants and can easily be integrated into the current structure of the facility. Once the system is installed, the ethanol plant can immediately begin producing corn oil with less than 1 percent free fatty acids and moisture.
For more information on the patented system, please contact FEC Solutions. FEC Solutions started in 2006 and has since been at the forefront of new market development and marketing of corn oil to capture value for dry mill ethanol plants throughout the upper Midwest. Today, FEC Solutions has grown to provide process improvement, equipment sourcing and construction, technology development, scale up, new product development and marketing of materials for bioprocessing facilities including ethanol and biodiesel plants.
