The fermentation process to obtain alcohol can be impaired by elevation of temperature, high concentration of ethanol and lack of adequate nutritional supplementation. Still, wild yeasts can contaminate and harm the process, or even stop a production line
The technology comprises a yeast that, in direct comparison with commercial yeasts used in fuel alcohol plants, exhibits greater resistance to high temperatures, greater viability during successive cycles of production and a greater chance of competing with wild yeasts and bacterial contaminants, all without need for nutritional supplementation.
