BMA research centre

Research and development at your service

Work in the research centre focuses on crystallisation methods for a variety of sugars and sugar substitutes. Pan boiling and cooling crystallisation tests are run on a laboratory and pilot scale in batch-type or continuous mode.

Another focus is on thermal methods for drying a variety of products for the biomass and food industries. Our research centre features a scaled-down steam dryer, which uses superheated water vapour for energy-efficient drying.

We also test the mechanical separation of solids and liquids, processes that are used in extraction or centrifugation in sucrose production.
