Keywords:   field peas, ethanol, milling, air classification, mechanical fractionation

The development of an engineering computer model for a milling and air classification system to quantify size and composition of process flows is described. This enables the use of the coarse fraction (starch-rich) for ethanol production and the fine fraction (protein-rich) as a high value co-product.
