Zero Residue Biorefinery
Our enzymes can be combined in order to provide oil producers with comprehensive solutions by turning waste into value.
PLASEMIX™ ™ offers an alternative to the conventional aqueous degumming of crude vegetable oil, reaching yields greater than 2% w/w and with lower refining costs. Our phospholipases convert the phospholipids (PLs) into diacylglycerides. As the PLs are hydrolyzed, emulsions are no longer formed and therefore the retained oil is released. The gums obtained from the traditional aqueous degumming processes can also be treated, resulting in the recovery of extra oil.
OLEINZYME™ was developed to transform edible oil and food industry byproducts — such as gums, soapstocks, or combinations of both — by treating them with an exclusive enzymatic preparation which greatly reduces its environmental impact and has superior characteristics as opposed to those of the traditional methods which rely on strong acids. This enzymatically-obtained acid oil can be employed as an additive to animal feed, among other uses.close
SGASE™ Our novel hydrolase completely removes steryl glycosides preventing the formation of insoluble precipitates, which account for major operational issues in the production of biodiesel and compromise the quality of the final product.
Our low-cost and high-efficiency biodiesel treatment minimizes the total amount of contaminants and enhances cold filtration properties and visual appearance (haze).
This enzymatic solution is compatible with the most common biodiesel production systems, such as Lurgi, Desmet Ballestra, and others, and can be introduced prior to the final drying step.close
PHYTASE (in the pipeline) a highly efficient protease-resistant enzyme with an improved thermal stability.
Phytases hydrolyze phytic acid by sequentially releasing the phosphate groups which are more readily available for monogastrics.close
Our team combine internationally recognized scientists with a record of achievements in biotechnology innovation, a management team focused on the company's growth and experienced national and international investors with the strategic vision required to succeed.
