Process Systems for Biopesticides

Hosokawa Micron's process technologies are deployed successfully in many manufacturing processes for powdery crop-protecting agents. Recent research has shown that their vacuum drying and mixing technologies are also suitable for the manufacture of biopesticides.

The market for biopesticides is growing rapidly. To gather more knowledge about biopesticide products and the production processes involved, Hosokawa Micron asked a group of chemical/process engineering students from the University of Applied Sciences in Utrecht, the Netherlands to conduct research into the subject.

The study concluded that Hosokawa Micron's process technologies can be deployed in many processes for the manufacture of biopesticides, with the low-temperature (vacuum) drying and mixing technologies being particularly suitable.

Test and Development Centre

To help producers when developing new biopesticide products or production processes, Hosokawa Micron offers extensive test and development facilities. It offers unique possibilities for testing your product to determine the most efficient process, system or plant prior to final design. We can provide laboratory-level as well as production-sized trials.

From pilot plant to production scale

Trials can range from laboratory-level to production-scale testing (from 1 up to 6000 litres). A team of skilled and experienced process engineers are available to help determine the most efficient process, system or plant prior to final design.
