TURBEX TO RECEIVE GOLD MEDAL
Andritz recently developed a highly efficient Turbex extraction system for the production of functional nutrients. Using patented technology, it extracts high-quality nutrients from botanicals and natural products and turns side streams such as orange peel or brewer’s spent grain into revenue-generating materials. Turbex delivers up to 50% higher yields and consumes up to 30% less energy than conventional extraction methods, according to the company.
On March 19, at Anuga FoodTec, Turbex will be awarded a gold medal under the International FoodTec Award from the German Agricultural Society, which has recognized groundbreaking developments in innovation, sustainability, and efficiency in the food technology sector since 1994.
A mobile Turbex unit will be showcased at the Andritz stand (B091) in Hall 5.1.
