  • Patent number: 10344288
    Abstract: Genetically engineered yeast with a heterologous glucoamylase and fermentation methods are described. The engineered yeast can have multiple exogenous nucleic acid sequences which each have a different sequence, but that encode the same or a similar glucoamylase protein that is heterologous to the yeast. The engineered yeast exhibit desirable bioproduct production profiles during a fermentation process. A fermentation medium with a starch material can be fermented with the engineered yeast to provide high ethanol titers, low glycerol titers, or both.

  • Patent number: 10239958
    Abstract: A process for modifying starch comprises atomising an aqueous slurry of non-pregelatinised starch into an internal chamber in a bi-fluid nozzle of a spray dryer and treating the atomized slurry, in the internal chamber, with superheated steam to cause partial gelatinisation of the starch. The aqueous slurry containing partially gelatinised starch is discharged through an outlet in the internal chamber into a reactor where the droplets containing the partially gelatinised starch are subjected to further treatment with superheated steam, resulting in the completion of the gelatinisation of the starch in the reactor. Also disclosed is a bi-fluid nozzle for use in spray drying starch which comprises a nozzle body, a nozzle cap and an internal chamber located between the nozzle body and the nozzle cap.
