Alfa Laval to unveil game-changing separation technology to boost distilled corn oil (DCO) recovery by more than 20% at FEW 2024

The Alfa Laval stand at the Fuel Ethanol Workshop (FEW) in Minneapolis, Minnesota, next month is set to be abuzz with discussion around a new technology that is ready to revolutionize DCO recovery.

As a global leader in heat transfer, separation, and fluid handling solutions, Alfa Laval's presence at FEW 2024 (June 10-12) not only showcases our commitment to advancing technology but also highlights our dedication to promoting environmental stewardship.

Improved oil recovery and quality

The latest innovations in our wide-ranging portfolio represent a major leap forward in enhancing production yield, efficiency, and industry quality standards, with a new technology developed that delivers a significant increase in oil recovery.

Not only that – with a higher quality of oil boasting a remarkable 99% purity, the technology is set to be a game-changer for the industry.

Alfa Laval is working with a growing number of producers in the ethanol market across a wide range of plants that have installations with very high corn oil yields. It means our equipment, developed through close cooperation with our customers, is helping to drive profitability and sustainability in the corn ethanol industry.

"We eagerly anticipate engaging with industry professionals at FEW to discuss the challenges and possibilities in the corn ethanol industry," said Stephen Ludes, Sales Manager at Alfa Laval.
