Mascoma Corporation, a renewable fuels company, announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Center for Veterinary Medicine has completed its scientific review and supports the use of the Mascoma Grain Technology, or MGT™, yeast product as a processing aid in the production of animal feed, which is a by-product of the corn ethanol conversion process. MGT is the first commercial application of Mascoma’s proprietary consolidated bioprocessing (CBP) technology platform and is designed as a drop-in substitute for conventional fermenting yeast that lowers costs for corn ethanol producers by alleviating the need to purchase most of the expensive enzymes currently used in corn ethanol production.
