Processes for recovering plant raw materials

Proteins, lipids, secondary plant materials, and dietary fibers

Plant-based raw materials offer industry enormous opportunities for manufacturing a variety of high-quality products. Our development work focuses on oilseeds, leguminous plants, cereal crops, pseudo-cereals, fruit, vegetables, and waste materials from the food and agriculture industries. We use our extensive knowledge of raw materials to develop efficient processes for the wet and dry fractionation of plant raw materials and other processes for purification and stabilization (e.g. membrane methods, spray-drying) in order to recover high-quality proteins, lipids, secondary plant materials, and dietary fibers. We also develop efficient and mild purification processes for plant oils. Our extensive processing plants allow us to work from a laboratory scale up to a small pilot plant scale (up to 2 m³).
