Pathogen control specialist Anitox has expanded its Fermentation division through the addition of Technical Services Manager, Matt Wilson. Wilson has developed his career through various technical roles, most recently at Lallemand Biofuels & Distilled Spirits.

According to Nick Braden, Commercial Director, “Our objective is for OptimOH to become the market-leading bacterial control tool for antibiotic free fermentation. We’re expanding our footprint and investing in partners, research and development.  We are also adding top talent to an already-strong team to push toward global expansion of our fermentation business.”

“Anitox values its relationship with the biofuel and fermentation sectors. OptimOH has the power to increase ethanol yield by protecting against microbial contaminants earlier in the fermentation process. Its proven thermostability means it can be applied earlier in the production process than other product on the market, minimizing potential loss of yield” explained Roger Mann, Chief Operating Officer of Anitox. “The addition of Matt to our team is a major commitment to the growth of our Fermentation business unit.  It underlines our dedication to this industry.”
