Lallemand, ICC Brazil Partner on Ethanol Yeast Derivatives (Int'l)
Lallemand, ICC Brazil
Date: 2019-07-26
Lallemand is reporting a long-term global partnership with Sao Paulo-based animal nutrition specialist ICC Brazil for the research, development and supply of inactive yeast products and fractions derived from sugarcane ethanol.

ICC specializes in the production and supply to animal nutrition and pet food customers of secondary yeast derivatives from ethanol, including yeast cell walls, inactive dry yeast, autolyzed and mineral yeasts.

According to Lallemand, the fermentation of sugarcane molasses or juices generates large quantities of spent yeast co-products that can be harvested and dried. Lallemand Animal Nutrition has expertise in the qualification of the chemical and physical structure of yeast cell wall, introducing new tools such as Atomic Force Microscopy and in vitro models to measure the binding capacities (against pathogens and/or toxins) and immune modulation effects of such products.

Lallemand notes it has been working on the selection of specific yeast strains that offer unique properties while producing high yields of ethanol.

The new partnership will secure a dedicated supply from ICC's contracted sugar/ethanol mills of characterized yeast cell wall products and yeast derivatives.

Date: 2018-09-26
Israeli headquartered fermentation products producer NextFerm reports it has inked a joint developement agreement with Waltham, Mass.-based Mascoma LLC, a subsidiary of Lallemand Inc. a leading supplier of yeast to ethanol producers.

Launched in 2015, NextFerm is primarily focused on developing fermentation yeast for the food industry. The company's process can be applied to many areas, including ethanol production, to develop yeast that is better able to cope with temperature or pH changes, for example. Accordingly, the company is now developing a new strain of yeast for Mascoma for use in the ethanol industry.

BASF, Lallemand Report US Ethanol Market Collaboration (Ind. Report)
BASF Enzymes, Lallemand Biofuels
Date: 2018-06-13
In San Diego, BASF Enzymes and Montral-headquartered Lallemand Biofuels & Distilled Spirits (LBDS) report they've formally entered into a marketing and sales collaboration agreement with the aim to maximize value to customers in the US ethanol market.

In the collaboration, BASF's enzyme portfolio will be used for applications in liquefaction and fermentation to improve fermentation performance. LBDS will use its TransFerm yeast product line which it claims provides increased ethanol yields and reduces the need for glucoamylase addition.

The BASF company portfolio is organized into five segments -- chemicals, performance products, functional materials & solutions, agricultural solutions and oil & gas.

LBDS supplies fermentation ingredients and 'value creating services' to the global fuel ethanol and distilled beverage industries.
