Ethanol producers face a major challenge today - driving profitability from their plant. Historically, ethanol plants focused mainly on producing ethanol with a few co-products; today they are a refinery that makes a number of different co-products including ethanol.

"IFF continues to invest in and apply technologies that drive additional value from the agricultural inputs in those biorefineries. We want to help make our customers more profitable."


Troy Wilson, Global Business Leader for Grain Processing.
