Process technologies for tomorrow.


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.
