Fiber Separation Technology™ / Fiber Separation Technology Next Gen™

FST Social media

FST™/FST Next Gen™ is the next layer of ICM technology following SMT™/SMTV2™. This progressive pre-fermentation separation system is designed to remove fiber prior to fermentation. Removing the fiber provides plants with the ability to concentrate process streams and to better utilize the capacities of fermentation and distillation. With this patented process, plants are able to maximize throughput.

 Benefits of FST™ / FST Next Gen™

  • Up to 25% corn distillers yield increase
  • Up to 14% ethanol capacity increase
  • 45% reduction in exchanger pressure
  • Less energy usage per gallon than competitors' offerings
  • Enhanced operational efficiency
  • Ability to produce Hi-Pro DDG, a high protein feed for poultry, swine, and aquaculture, selling at a significant premium over DDGS
  • Platform for additional value from Gen 1.5 cellulosic ethanol technology
