The company’s history has shown that collaboration with external research partners can lead to a fruitful exchange of competences. The insight gained leads to important know-how for the manufacturing of Jungbunzlauer ingredients.
Our research and development activities are focused on
- process development using ultra filtration more extensively in the downstream purification processes which will reduce the consumption of filter aids, thereby reducing costs and waste streams
- yield improvement in both the fermentation and purification steps of citric acid production using innovative process steps
The results achieved and implemented in production stemming from the research and development activities are very satisfactory. The pipeline of ideas and on-going projects also gives strong reason to believe that the competitiveness and sustainability profile of the company can be advanced even further. Focus on process optimisation is therefore a strategic lever to create further profitable growth and secure a competitive advantage over competition.
