What could a 2% oil yield increase mean for your business?
If you haven’t considered optimizing your process through the addition of enzymatic technology, you’re almost certainly leaving money on the table – it’s just a question of how much.
By adding our enzymes to your refining process, you can convert more phospholipids to oil. That means cutting by-products and boosting oil yields by up to 2%. And you can unlock this extra profit at various stages of your process, such as water degumming, physical refining and even alkaline refining. Discover the different solutions we can offer you.
With our oil profit calculator, you can evaluate the main steps of your refining process and find the combination that will maximize gains and minimize loss.
