PROtect Announces A Collaboration With IFF For Enhanced Operator Training


PROtect Announces a Collaboration with IFF for Enhanced Operator Training

June 6, 2022 – PROtect, is pleased to announce its collaboration with IFF’s Health & Biosciences division to deliver enhanced training to producers in the ethanol industry.

PROtect works with a variety of industries throughout the U.S. to ensure companies are protected from unnecessary risks related to regulatory non-compliance, employee injury, liability, and property damage. PROtect’s Operator Training programs have been the leading training system for ethanol producers for many years. Through this collaboration, IFF will add critical training around the use of enzymes and yeast through PROtect’s program and improve the biotechnology expertise of ethanol producers.

“At IFF, we believe that as the ethanol production process becomes more complex, workforce training is paramount to future success. Our training materials will add to the operator experience in PROtect’s system and equip them with key understanding of the interdependencies of biotechnology in the plant and how their decisions will affect production outcomes,” said Samantha Dickens, North America sales leader.

Scott Allen, VP of Bus Dev Renewable Fuels at PROtect stated, “By combining the PROtect® Operator Training Package with IFF’s expertise in bioscience, we can deliver significantly more value to the ethanol industry workforce.  This collaboration reflects the commitment of both our companies in driving success at the production site and lays the groundwork for more comprehensive training products in the future”.

The new IFF training modules will be available in the PROtect Operator Training programs starting June 2022.
