Jungbunzlauer increases capacity of citric acid production in Austria

We are pleased to announce that a significant increase of our Citrics capacity in Jungbunzlauer’s largest production plant Pernhofen, Austria is currently in process.  The Jungbunzlauer Citrics portfolio offers a broad range of citric acid and tri-sodium citrate product types. The growing demand for these products has encouraged Jungbunzlauer to invest in this new capacity which consists of state-of-the art fermentation equipment as well as the most advanced installations for separation and purification.

With the new capabilities we re-inforce our long-term commitment to support our customers in a growing market while at the same time striving to be the most reliable and sustainable manufacturer of products meeting the needs of our customers for high quality and short lead times.

In line with our mission “From nature to ingredients®” and with our sustainability and responsibility values, Jungbunzlauer Austria produces Citrics products by fermentation of natural, non-GM carbohydrates. With the new expansion, we will continue our efforts to optimise processes including the reduction of energy and water consumption. In addition, we will further improve production efficiencies and minimise waste.
