Products & Processes
Ethanol is a high octane, high performance, renewable fuel used as an oxygenate in gasoline. Marquis' ethanol is produced through the age-old process of fermentation, enhanced by cutting-edge enzymatic and technological developments, to efficiently convert the starch in corn to fermentable sugar.
The success of our biorefinery is a result of our ability to use every part of a kernel of corn to its maximum benefit. Squeezing every drop of ethanol from that kernel requires chemistry, consistency, and communication. Marquis excels in these areas, and has a track record of industry-leading production capabilities.
