TRANSFERM® YP3 is used in the production of fuel ethanol from liquefied grains. It is an advanced and improved (relative to TransFerm Yield+) strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae that expresses glucoamylase (GA) enzyme and reduces glycerol production. Fuel ethanol production facilities using TransFerm YP3 often experience ethanol yield improvements of around 4% over standard dry yeast, a reduction in glycerol of over 50% and a reduction of separately purchased GA enzyme by 35% when compared to conventional industry yeasts.
