POS offers full-cycle process development and contract R&D services, from laboratory- to commercial-scale, including:
• Initial evaluation and proof of concept;
• Application development;
• Market assessment;
• Pilot scale-up; and
• Commercial production.
Laboratory-Scale (Up to 5 kg)
In addition to bench-scale processing and research, all of POS’s pilot plant-scale processes can be performed at a laboratory level. This allows us to minimize inputs and conduct the appropriate project analysis.
Mini-Pilot-Scale Trials (5-100 kg)
Similar to services offered in the lab or pilot plant, POS is able to emulate industrial processes on a protracted level, such as refining, bleaching and deodorizing, protein extraction and purification, as well as mini-bead mill extraction for biomass.
Pilot-Scale Development (100 kg – Tonnes)
Our pilot plant capabilities are world-class:
• Extraction (solvent and non-solvent);
• Desolventizing solids and liquids;
• Drying and milling;
• Solvent partitioning;
• Filtering and screening;
• Air classification;
• Modification; and
• Enzyme and chemical hydrogenation and hydrolysis.
Toll Processing (Tonnes)
We are also able to accommodate larger quantities for toll processing.
