LABORATORY STRUCTURE

The main pillar of brprocess is the incessant search for promising technologies. Perfecting these technologies with the goal of making them robust and consistent in our customers’ processes is also one of our biggest concerns.
In partnership with ITAL (Food Technology Institute, Campinas, SP), brprocess has a laboratory with structure and dedicated researchers, as well as modern equipment for multivariate analysis and simulation of processes of vegetable oils and biodiesel in the various stages of processing.

SIMULATION AND PILOT TESTS

We also carry out the entire scale-up process, with adaptations and improvements to the selected processes.
