news-processium
The Catalytic Process Engineering Laboratory (LGPC) and the company Processium have just set up their activities on Axel’One Campus in the spring of 2019. They carry out projects around the acquisition of process data in their joint laboratory. The LGPC (under the supervision of the CNRS, CPE Lyon and the University of Lyon 1) and Processium, specialized in process design, have been working together for several years. They decided to strengthen their collaboration by creating their joint laboratory called DATAFAB. Read more ...

Deinove announces the success of its cosmetic active ingredient’s production process industrialization

news-processium
  DEINOVE (Euronext Growth Paris: ALDEI), a biotech company that discovers, develops, and produces high-value compounds from rare bacteria, notably from the Deinococcus genus, announces having produced the first industrial batch of its innovative carotenoid. As announced in December, the scale-up of the fermentation production process was carried out on the technological platform of the BIOGIS Center at SAS PIVERT. After a technology transfer stage, a first production of several cubic meters was successfully completed. The biomass produced followed an original and environmentally-friendly process, developed in collaboration with PROCESSIUM, for extraction, purification, and formulation, resulting in the first industrial batch of the end product. DEINOVE selected VEG’EXTRA, a specialist in extraction, as a provider for these downstream processing steps. Read more ...

<strong>Deinove: the industrialization process of the carotenoids program enters Phase II</strong>

Deinove: the industrialization process of the carotenoids program enters Phase II

news-processium
  In November 2016, DEINOVE launched the shift from laboratory to industrial scale, accompanied by the company Processium* . The first phase of this program consisted of: Selecting and characterizing a first carotenoid that will be market-ready, validating both its biological properties and its economic potential; Optimizing the production strain and increasing the yields in the laboratory, with a view to obtaining a strain suitable for industrial production; Evaluating the various extraction processes in order to define the best one in industrial production conditions. This phase I has been conducted successfully. A first molecule has been selected for its innovative feature, with the goal of obtaining a competitive advantage on the market. DEINOVE has demonstrated its total safety, but also its antioxidant and healing properties, which position this first molecule…

<strong>Deinove signs a partnership with Processium to prepare for the industrialization of its carotenoid production process</strong>

Deinove signs a partnership with Processium to prepare for the industrialization of its carotenoid production process

news-processium
In 2016, DEINOVE obtained proof of concept for the production of carotenoid molecules from optimized Deinococcus strains: 5 conventional molecules with known applications and identified markets; 1 new molecule, Deinoxanthin, which must undergo characterization tests and a regulatory clearance before it can be marketed. One of DEINOVE’s strategic goals is to market carotenoids in the form of ingredients directly to the industrials of its target markets. DEINOVE does not have plans to develop its own manufacturing facilities, but will subcontract production, including the large-scale fermentation, extraction, purification and formulation stages. DEINOVE therefore chose Processium, an industrial process engineering firm headquartered in Lyon that works in the chemistry and biotech fields. The experts at Processium will have two major missions with DEINOVE: developing and validating an industrial process for extracting carotenoids…

<strong>GLOBAL BIOENERGIES’s bio-isobutene now at 99.77% purity</strong>

GLOBAL BIOENERGIES’s bio-isobutene now at 99.77% purity

news-processium
Global Bioenergies routinely produces isobutene batches using its industrial pilot located in Pomacle-Bazancourt, eastern France. Up to now, 95% purity was reached, a level sufficient for several applications, such as fuels and paints in particular. For the first time, with the help of Processium, a chemical engineering company headquartered in Lyon, France, Global Bioenergies was able to purify batches to a much higher level, reaching 99.77%, the remaining 0.23% being mostly composed of CO2, an inert gas known to be neutral in most chemical reactions. Thomas Buhl, Head of business development at Global Bioenergies, comments: “Several applications in the polymers business (rubbers, plastics…) require high-purity isobutene, and 99.77% corresponds to the polymer-grade standard. We expect that our high-purity bio-isobutene will meet the specifications of the industrial leaders involved in converting…
