Research & Development
We are engineers and researchers. That is why at Tomsa Destil we are continuously developing our processes to be used in new fields of application and to improve the efficiency of them. In the biological area we count with experienced technicians in the selection of microorganism, isolation and improvement of productive species, freeze dried of yeasts, investigation of fermentation and hydrolysis, etc.
Regarding the field of isolation, we exceed in the distillation and dehydration of any mixture of alcohols and sub products, the determination of eutectic points of available mixtures of products, the processes of isolation by semi permeable membranes, the evaporation and crystallization of solutions of dissolved or floating solid products.
In the field of waste water treatment we have worked in several processes of chemical oxidation of polluting substances, aerobic and anaerobic bio digesters, calculation of BOD, QOD, COV, etc. We count with a high level of successes regarding the industrial field of several prototype processes developed in our laboratory.
Our research has granted us several patents in new yeasts and enzymes.
Among our R&D infrastructure we possess a 1,000 litres fermentation unit for scaling up from lab size. This unit is designed in skid for transportation to perform tests at our clients site.
We aslo count with a 1,000 litres/day complete pilot plant, including fermentation, distillation and evaporation for testing our results in semi-industrial size plant.
All our processes are fully tested to provide the best solution in the market
