The paper presents the results of laboratory and pilot studies to produce bioethanol from starchy raw-materials (namely maize) using a very high gravity system (VHG). The aim of the experiments was the testing of the last generation of enzymes for industrial use produced by companies: NOVOZYMES and DANISCO (GENENCOR enzymes) and the establishment of most suitable pilot technology using these enzymes. The evolution of mash parameters during liquefaction, saccharification and fermentation was monitored during pilot experiments and finally the yield in ethanol and specific consumptions were calculated, in order to estimate the process effectiveness.
