Inedible Corn Oil
An emerging co-product for the ethanol industry is inedible corn oil. During the distillation process, liquid is separated from the mash and partially dehydrated into syrup. Removing the crude oil from the syrup before it is mixed with distiller grains creates an additional co-product and revenue stream – inedible corn oil. The corn oil can be used by the biodiesel industry to produce ASTM biodiesel. In fact, biodiesel produced from inedible corn oil has the lowest carbon intensity score of any biodiesel feedstock. Inedible corn oil can also be sold to feed lots and poultry markets among others.
