Our process

We produce high-quality ethanol from whey, a natural by-product of pure grass-fed New Zealand milk.

Traditionally, ethanol is manufactured using molasses, cane sugar or grain as the raw material, or synthetically from petroleum. Our operation is one of the few in the world where casein whey is the feedstock for ethanol production.
