Oligomers from BiomassWe have undertaken a number of projects, for different clients, focused on obtaining oligomeric sugars from biomass, or biomass-derived polymers. The bioprocess development work focused on achieving improved product characteristcs, according to the client's specifications, over the existing bioprocess. Such characteristics included the oligomer chain length and the ratio of monomeric to oligomeric sugars in the final liquid output.
Pectin from Agricultural ResiduesWe have also worked on a number of bioprocess development projects that involve the incorporation of a pectin extraction step as a first-stage process node to be incorporated within an existing bioprocess. The extraction of pectin is complex and challenging and requires careful bioprocess development in order to ensure that the product is obtained in high yields and high purities.
