White Biotechnology

Industrial white biotechnology processes often deal with the conversion of natural raw materials into consumer goods as cosmetics, detergents, cleaning agents and much more. The conversion of bio-based raw materials to these value products is often realized by enzyme-based bioreactions.

MANN+HUMMEL offers a wide portfolio of membrane solutions to fit the increasing challenges in white biotechnology. Membrane products in micro-, ultra- and nanofiltration based on polymeric and ceramic membranes can be adapted to specific customer process needs, and allow operation under harsh process conditions.

Our membrane solutions can treat high organic loads and show high process robustness and cleaning efficiencies in biotechnical applications. They support zero liquid discharge (ZLD) concepts for solvents, acids and caustics used in white biotechnology. Process integration with high enzyme recovery is possible with our membrane products. 

Main Applications

Cell Free Harvest

Laboratory bioreactor. Reactor fermenter. Fermenter industrial. Microbiological processes. The creation of drugs. Bio technology industry. Pharmacology.

Are you running fermentation processes where cells need to be reliably-separated from the target solution and you want to make sure that no invasive bacteria is fed into your batch reactor with the nutrient solution? 

Fermentation Process

Are you looking for a filtration solution to separate by-products from a fermentation solution? MANN+HUMMEL offers a wide range of solutions that our experts will be happy to work out with you.
