Ethanol Calibration System: A Reliable, Rapid Offering


DuPont has received an external independent validation from the Illinois Crop Improvement Association (ICIA) which shows that its Ethanol Yield Potential (EYP) near infrared (NIR) calibration reliably predicts the ethanol output of whole corn grain. The calibration, developed by DuPont business Pioneer Hi-Bred , allows ethanol plants to rapidly and consistently evaluate incoming grain, helping both plant managers and growers determine which corn hybrids and management practices can improve ethanol production.

“The independent evaluation from the Illinois Crop Improvement Association should give processors and growers greater confidence that the EYP system is a highly accurate tool for evaluating corn grain, regardless of the seed source,” said Russ Sanders, marketing director -- Pioneer Hi-Bred. “The system can provide processors with comprehensive comparative ethanol yield prediction data for every load of grain brought to a plant. When shared with corn growers who sell grain to the facility, this information will enable them to better understand how genetics and management practices influence ethanol yield at the farm level.”
