Driving business impact in one of APAC’s first enzymatic specialty fats plants
The team’s expertise played a key role in convincing a leading regional specialty fat manufacturer that they could expect more from Novozymes. A visit to the center of excellence led to an exciting exchange of ideas. The next step was to run continuous column trials for enzymatic interesterification and specialty fats projects. Finally, we set up a continuous column trial in the company’s own laboratory. The result was the establishment of one of the first specialty fats plant in the region, using our immobilized enzymes.
Growing to meet our customers’ needs
The palm oil market in the Asia-Pacific region is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 6% between 2021 and 2025. To ensure the center’s laboratories have the capacity to both match that growth and cover emerging applications, we’re expanding them by nearly 800 square feet. We’re also adding a range of equipment to allow the center to scale up its sampling. These include multi-batch reactors, high-performance liquid chromatography and thin-layer chromatography-flame ionization detection (TLC-FID) systems. The upgraded center will ensure that we can continue to drive business impact together with our customers across the Asia-Pacific region.
