As a biofuel, bio ethanol plays a major part in reducing the transportation sector’s carbon footprint and decreasing our dependency on fossil fuels. Over the years, the ethanol industry has extended across the globe supported by government blending mandates and policies. Incorporating innovations and new technologies to extract the greatest value from local biomass – such as corn, cane, beet, cassava, rice, etc. – ensure more sustainable processes and enlarge the supply of clean bio ethanol.
Bio ethanol producers are continuously improving to valorize co-products and bring answers to today’s and future challenges: feeding the world, reducing climate change, and more globally caring for our planet.
At Leaf, we understand our partners’ goal is to increase their profitability through industrial ethanol yields and production efficiency. Each bio ethanol plant is unique and has very specific operating parameters. These characteristics could be linked to your geographical area, raw materials used for bio ethanol production, or operational processes.
In this perspective, the choice of yeast is an important technological decision that directly impacts your plant’s performance. Our comprehensive portfolio of advanced yeasts and nutrition products, coupled with smart technical services is designed to support you in meeting your profitability and production goals.

Ethanol Red® is the industry standard in biofuel production. Ethanol Red® is our rapid fermenting, temperature tolerant strain of yeast that is capable of reaching a final ethanol concentration of up to 18% (v/v) making it ideal for the production of industrial ethanol from starch substrates.
Gen One + is our specially selected strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae developed for the starch-based industrial ethanol industry using Lesaffre’s patented hybridization techniques. Gen One + is a temperature tolerant dry yeast that displays higher alcohol yields and decreased glycerol production within processes using low to medium gravity conditions as compared with similar yeast strains on the market.
Safdistil™ Plus is our hybrid yeast selected for its superior fermentation kinetic, temperature resistance and ethanol tolerance on beet substrates of a wide range of purity –beet juice, thick juice, molasse.
Propaide™ is our yeast nutrient complex based on the synergies between organic & mineral nitrogen and vitamins. Its formula was specifically developed to enhance yeast growth and secure industrial ethanol fermentations.
