Bioreactors - Reliable and Efficient

In fermentation processes, substances such as enzymes, active pharmaceutical ingredients (API), amino acids or vitamins are produced as metabolites of animal or plant microorganisms. To increase productivity in the process, the microorganisms must be supplied with sufficient oxygen and nutrients. In addition, by-products such as carbon dioxide must be removed, and ideal temperature and pH conditions must be maintained.
By knowing the general needs of the specific fermentation processes, followed by expertise in scale-up from lab-reactors up to industrial bio-reactors and the full range of mechanical calculation methods, EKATO provides a concept for reliable plant operation and to fulfill the complex process requirements.
  • Amino acids: Lysine, Threonine,...
  • Polysaccharides: Xanthan, Gellan Gum,...
  • Pharmaceutical industry: Antibiotics, Insulin, Penicillin,…
  • Vitamins: Ascorbic Acid, Vitamine B12,…
  • Biofuels: Bioethanol (first and second Generation)
