Upcycled ingredients samples produced at our facility

Sample generation using Simulated Moving Bed (SMB)

Greencovery keeps expanding, and last year we started our sample generation facility. In this facility, we can produce kilograms of samples to be tested in food applications.  During the last months we tested the facility to produce  ingredients from different food side-streams and samples were tested on several applications. One of those ingredients was the production of a natural preservative based on potassium lactate. To produce this sample, we processed 100 L of side-stream with our technology and the simulated moving bed (SMB) from our partner XPure Chromatography Systems.

On November 2021 we rented the XPure-S simulated moving bed (SMB) system, and the system was used at our facility. The system was installed and coupled with our other separation units. Running the system at our facility went really smoothly thanks to the help from two members from XPure’s team, Pieter de Wit and Andrea Kurtinović.

It was a great opportunity to test continuous chromatography at our facilities and validate the combination of our technologies. We are really glad about the outcome and with the collaboration with XPure and are looking forward to further applications and collaboration in the future. Samples are being tested in the coming weeks and looking forward to the next steps.
