Enogen Footprint Is Expected to Expand in 2018

Nearly 40 percent of U.S. corn goes toward ethanol production. According to Chris Tingle, head of commercial operations for Enogen at Syngenta, providing alpha amylase enzyme to ethanol plants as Enogen grain is helping corn growers maximize return on investment for their ethanol acres. He adds that this unique business model supports rural America by keeping enzyme dollars local and helping ethanol plants be more successful. 

“With Enogen, ethanol producers can redirect the money they previously used to buy liquid alpha amylase to local farmers instead, in the form of a premium valued up to 40 cents per bushel,” Tingle says. “This is especially significant given today’s commodity prices.” 

Syngenta is currently contracting with more than 1,700 corn growers and has marketing agreements with 31 ethanol plants across 12 states. This year’s ethanol production with Enogen corn is expected to be over 2.5 billion gallons. 

“Ethanol has become an important success story,” Tingle says. “It’s helping America reduce its dependence on foreign oil, lowering prices at the pump, improving the environment with lower emissions, and growing the economy with jobs that can’t be outsourced. Syngenta is proud to partner with corn growers and the ethanol industry to help provide consumers with the choice to purchase a superior, higher octane fuel and pay less.”
