NOVA™ EZL – Antibiotic-Free Antimicrobial Liquid for Bioethanol Production 

NOVA™ EZL is a liquid formulation containing ethyl lauroyl arginate (ELA) that has shown to be effective against both gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria.1 NOVA EZL is formulated to act as a surfactant, targeting bacterial cell membranes and cytoplasm throughout the propagation and fermentation stages of bioethanol production. 

NOVA EZL provides a unique antibiotic-free approach that effectively hinders bacterial resistance, ensuring a cleaner and more efficient bioethanol production process.

NOVA EZL is an effective antimicrobial for enhancing a bacteria control program for bioethanol plants interested in antibiotic-free ethanol production.
