An Italian company with a deep expertise in fermentation systems and process technologies for biotech production, has developed a high advanced fermentation technology that allows a very large number of products.
The innovative technology is suitable for solid state fermentation and also downstream operations under sterile conditions as well: downstream operations can be performed in the same bioreactor upon completion of the fermentation processes, so avoiding additional transfer to other equipment and contamination risks.
Furthermore the solid state process produces no wastewater to be treated, so saving treatment plant and its operation costs.
The fermentation plant is a solution fitting for many manufacturing sectors, such as food, feed, biotech, pharma, agro-active ingredient productions. The technology is particularly useful to get fungi viable spores in large quantity, yeast viable cells in dry granules of powders, secondary methabolites or enzymes fixed on solid dry granules, etc.
Process steps, production cycle time and contamination risk are drastically reduced in the bioreactor unit.
The proprietary hardware and software of the bioreactor allows full control of the key process conditions. It includes Wi-Fi for mobile parts connectivity to PLC. All process data are accurately tracked and recorded for full product traceability.
The new technology equipment and process is protected by international patent.
The Italian company is looking for new partners such as:
- engineering companies, installer and producer of manufacturing plants in the food, feed, pharma, agro-active ingredient sectors, interested in adapting the innovative fermentation technology to their own requirements and integrating it in their process equipment, under commercial agreement with technical assistance
- companies and research centers searching high efficiency fermentation plants with specific aims and features, wishing to collaborate under research or technical cooperation agreement.
