Eurodia to attend Anuga FoodTec fair with its latest product: the D90 Neo process

Since day one, Eurodia has offered patented technology solutions that selectively separate the minerals in whey, while preserving the quality of its lactose and seric proteins. Whey was once viewed as a polluting byproduct of milk coagulation during cheesemaking, and was only valourized in animal feed. Then in the 1970s, it also became a dairy ingredient of high interest for human food. Valourizing this dairy byproduct by demineralizing it offers a dual benefit, both economic and environmental: a product with high energy value, and reduced organic pollution in the environment.

A complete range of exclusive, flexible processes for the dairy industry Eurodia-patented processes produce 70% of the world’s D90, a key ingredient in infant formula. Combining ion-exchange resins, membrane filtration and electrodialysis, Eurodia’s processes offer microbiological conditions with perfect pH and temperatures for the 90% demineralization of whey. The highly nutritious proteins in whey are now widely used in the agrofood industry for consumer staples (infant formula, baked goods, chocolate, dietary products etc.).

Global demand for the purified compounds in whey is therefore high, and subject to stringent requirements, in terms of both quantity and quality. Eurodia’s processes systematically adapt to each customer’s specification, operating context, and target compounds (and their purity levels) to best optimize the plant’s capacity and efficiency and the life of consumables.

D90 Neo: a next-generation process

The Eurodia-patented D90 Neo process, the latest addition to the range, is a membrane-only process without ion-exchange resins. This compelling innovation – which performs resin-free, acidic-pH 90% demineralization – delivers high protein and dry-matter yields and offers improved productivity. Its continuous process provides benefits in two areas:

Operating cost:

  • Greater flexibility of the demineralization line, enabling production of three types of whey (D50, D70 and D90) with the same unit.
  • No intermediate storage during purification.

Environmental impact:

  • Lower consumption of chemicals and water.
  • Improved water balance through effluent recycling.

Innovative solutions for the industrial sectors of the future

Eurodia also provides technology solutions for the needs of each of these sectors:

  • Sugar & starch industries. Eurodia can provide efficient purification systems and combinations of innovative custom processes for the production of specialty sugars, polyols, glucose, fructose and various oligosaccharides (GOS, FOS, HMO etc.) for the needs of the agrofood and pharmaceutical markets.
    Thanks to its technology solutions, which deliver both high efficiency and low
    environmental impact, Eurodia has also become a leading player in the industries
  • the environmental transition:
    Purification of the carbon fractions of biomass, and of the molecules arising
    from this transformation (biosourced chemistry);
    Decarbonization of existing industrial processes, and the capture of CO²
    emissions for conversion into molecules of interest.
  • the energy transition. Eurodia’s technological mastery is in demand from the lithium
    and electric-battery production sector for the purification of lithium compounds, a
    vital resource for the development of new technologies and electrical transportation.
