We obtain and generate value-added compounds with applications in the food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical sectors, in an efficient and sustainable way.
Supercritical and subcritical CO2 extraction technology allows the production of trace-free quality value-added compounds while complying with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), which are required especially in the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industry. Essential oils, pigments, flavourings and antioxidants are some examples.
On the other hand, biotechnology enables the generation of value-added compounds through the use of micro-organisms and appropriate cultivation conditions. Single Cell Proteins (SCP), building blocks, biomaterials, cosmetic ingredients and biofuels are some examples.
Generating new biomasses is an innovative way of creating useful compounds from waste or by-products of industry. Biomass is obtained from the cultivation of microalgae or lemna, which can be used to extract compounds such as dyes, omega-3 fatty acids or polysaccharides.
We provide final and industrial production solutions, always considering the technical-economic feasibility.
