Our expertise has years of operations and design experience with an extensive diversity of fermentation, reaction engineering and reactor design. Our expertise in reaction engineering and reactor designs has direct application to makers of food-grade products requiring single-stage or multistage reactions, etc. We can simulate your existing process system and use this as a starting point from which to explore and recommend diversity of process improvements.
Product Quality and Process Optimization – The objective is to design or improve process technologies to produce quality foods and beverages that are safe to consume and are economically feasible on commercial productions. We can help assess operational options to improve efficiencies and assist the client in gaining a better understanding of the interactions between processes and the food products – considerations often overlooked in the past with traditional batch food processes.
Improved Food Process Selection and Design – Over the years, food processing has grown in complexity and size, the trends between the continuous processing of food and continuous processing of traditional chemical processing industries are the same. The demand worldwide for efficient and low – cost process designs has led to many crossovers between food and chemical plant designs.
Hygienic Design and Process Hygiene -As we have seen in recent news, production sanitation, cleanliness, and hygiene are receiving increased emphasis with the various regulatory agencies charged with maintaining the safety of the food chain. The main design activities here concentrate on the integration of hygienic measures to improve process sanitation in general, fundamentally sound first principles cleaning procedures, and application of fluid flow principles
COMPLIANT, CERTIFICATION AND DOCUMENTATIONS
Every food and beverage industry needs to be a compliant to the state and international standards and must be certified in other to operate successfully. Proper documentation is a requirement for GMP.
EBL has expertise with years of experience in those areas who can assist you get all the required compliant certifications and a proper documentation procedure to run your process.
HOW WE GET THE JOB DONE
Our client’s present to us the product idea; based on their market experience and their processes. We add our engineering expertise to bring the customers ideas into reality. The equipment we specify and design is used for long-term production on a mass basis; therefore, the process must be clean, safe, cost-effective, and robust to produce a quality product consistently.
How we go about it:
- Evaluate the process options with our clients
- Supply the resources and engineering expertise in addition to our client’s knowledge of food technology
- Perform proof-of-principle demonstrations via simulation and/or the design of bench-scale testing programs
- Design a pilot line and, with the clients, fine-tune the process parameters
- Capital Project Development Support
