Concurrent Alcohol Recovery & Fermentation



It is estimated that distillation and evaporation processes account for 9% of all energy consumed in North America. This project is aiming to reduce the operating costs and capital costs of industries who use distillation and evaporation in their production processes.


Drystill has partnered with Lambton College to test the continuous removal of ethanol from an ethanol fermentation batch that will use a low temperature, non-destructive distillation process to remove ethanol from the fermentation broth a the yeast is producing ethanol. This project is designed to improve the production of ethanol and improve sugar utilization.
