ederna offers to license its evapEOs® cold concentration process to F&B and biotech companies and studies the possibility of its industrial integration. Based on the natural phenomenon of Engineered Osmosis, evapEOs is a cold concentration technology which ensures total preservation of the product both in terms of sensory profile and bioactivity. With its low energy consumption, evapEOs leads to a reduction of the costs and the environmental impact of the production processes. Thanks to these key advantages, evapEOs is the ideal innovative solution for developing natural and high value-added products that will become market leaders.
