In the fuel ethanol industry, we find ourselves in an ever-changing, marketplace that is facing higher input costs and increased competition. Because of these market dynamics, and in order to have long-term success, producers will need to become more efficient in their production processes. Obviously, yeast is a critical component of the ethanol production process, and as a result, yeast and yeast management practices should be reviewed and evaluated in order to find innovative ways of maximizing yeast performance.

The Leaf Technical training is designed to address these specific needs of the Bio-Ethanol Producer in terms of fermentation performance and plant optimization. The program will also address new developments in yeast and yeast management for the Bio-Ethanol industry in a manner designed to empower key decision makers with the necessary tools and information to maximize efficiency, profitability and sustainability.
