Improving Fermentation Naturally
in the Biofuels Industry

Global Biofuels

For centuries hops and yeast have been ideally matched partners in the brewing of beer. BetaTec Hop Products has capitalized on this marriage and introduced a range of naturally-derived substances for use in the biofuels industry which enhance yeast performance and control gram-positive bacteria. Our products can be applied to yeast propagators, conversion vessels or fermentation tanks, and virtually every type of feed stock that is fermentable.

About Our Products

For biofuels production, BetaTec has a broad portfolio of products designed specifically for fermentation and control of gram-positive bacteria.

Since the middle ages, hops have been associated with the “magical” ability to preserve numerous products from spoiling. We now know that certain fractions of the hop cone are highly effective in the control of gram-positive bacteria… so effective that they have replaced antibiotics in several industrial settings. They are the active ingredient of numerous naturally-derived products which retard unwanted bacterial contamination.

Fermentation Aids

BetaTec’s VitaHop® product line are fermentation aids that have been especially formulated to enhance the performance and vitality of yeast and improve production conditions to make commercial fermentation processes more efficient and productive.
