  1. 1. Fuel Ethanol
  2. 2. What is PureMash? <ul><li>PureMash is a patent pending, generated chlorine dioxide based antimicrobial system to control competing microorganisms to yeast in fermentation processes. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Why Use PureMash Technology? <ul><li>High Organic Acids/Infections </li></ul><ul><li>Problem Systems not Addressable with Antibiotics </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Heat Exchangers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cook Water </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Antibiotic Free Distillers Grain </li></ul><ul><li>High Standard Deviation with Current Practice </li></ul><ul><li>FDA Regulatory Compliance </li></ul>

  10. 10. What is Chlorine Dioxide? <ul><li>Chlorine Dioxide: </li></ul><ul><li>Must be generated on site </li></ul><ul><li>Resonance molecule </li></ul><ul><li>DISSOLVED GAS – Molecule does not dissociate in water </li></ul><ul><li>Maintains residual </li></ul><ul><li>Selective biocidal action </li></ul><ul><li>pH independent </li></ul><ul><li>Soluble in water </li></ul><ul><li>Does not react with ammonia </li></ul>Chemical Formula: ClO 2 Molecular Weight: 67.45 g/mole Melting Point ( o C): -59 Boiling Point ( o C): +11
  11. 11. PureMash Fermentation Technology: The Science <ul><li>Yeast tolerate and thrive when exposed to high concentrations of chlorine dioxide </li></ul><ul><li>Competing microbiology is reduced/eliminated while the Yeast continue to propagate </li></ul><ul><li>PureMash technology is selective – High efficacy at low concentrations allowing application to mash, propagator and fermentor </li></ul><ul><li>Byproduct is safe, regulatory free chloride ion – indeterminate from background </li></ul><ul><li>Increased ethanol efficiency – combining microbiology efficacy with the synergy of Yeast/chlorine dioxide </li></ul><ul><li>Applicable in ETOH processes where antibiotics cannot </li></ul>
  12. 12. Advantages of Chlorine Dioxide <ul><li>Broad spectrum Biocide and Virucide </li></ul><ul><li>Microbiological organisms do not become resistant or build tolerance </li></ul><ul><li>Synergy with the Yeast organism </li></ul><ul><li>Technology can respond “real time” to infections </li></ul><ul><li>No regulated or problematic byproducts </li></ul><ul><li>Technology can be applied to non-traditional infection sources, i.e. heat exchangers, mash, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>DDGS free of antibiotic residue </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple and simultaneous point application program </li></ul><ul><li>Process, systems DCS based control coupled with multipoint application assure a consistent treatment scheme </li></ul>
  13. 13. ClO 2 Efficacy & Chemical Selectivity <ul><li>ClO 2 reacts rapidly with sulfides </li></ul><ul><ul><li>amino acids containing sulfide groups </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(cystine, thymine, etc.) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>di-sulfide linkage(s) in protein synthesis </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>H 2 S from anaerobic bacteria (SRBs) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Phenolic aminoacids (tyrosine) </li></ul><ul><li>ClO 2 can penetrate biofilm “in search” of these chemical functionalities </li></ul>
