BIOINDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS

When the insect becomes an adult it turns into a beetle. And Tebrio extracts the chitin from its exoskeleton, which it then transforms into chitosan. This polymer has dozens of bioindustrial applications, which range from the manufacturing of biodegradable plastics to waste water treatment, as well in as the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industry.

TENEBRIO MOLITOR

Our production system allows us to obtain chitosan from a controlled raw material, in a constant production regime and with homogeneous quality according to the needs of each customer.

:oTosan contains nitrogenated polysaccharides with biodegradable, biocompatible, antimicrobial, antiviral and antifungal properties.

BIO-INDUSTRIAL USES

A WIDE RANGE OF SUSTAINABLE BIOTECHNOLOGICAL SOLUTIONS FOR TRADITIONAL INDUSTRY

There are very wide applications of chitin and chitosan.

:oTosan

It is the first regular source for high-value technological, pharmaceutical and medical uses. It has high reactivity, its degree of acetylation exceeds 80%.

Water treatment, as the basis for flocculant and coagulant products.

Food industry, in the form of additives or as basic raw material for producing antimicrobial protective films and/or filter materials.

Medicine, as a component of dressings, bandages and as a compound to control blood cholesterol.

Biotechnology, in a large number of applications such as cellular coatings, enzyme immobilisation agents, etc.

Agriculture, for seed coating, as fertiliser, growth stimulant and insecticide.

Cosmetics, as matrix due to its moisturising properties and zero allergenicity.

Paper industry, increasing the yield of pulp and providing greater resistance and improvements in ink fixing.

Other industries, because of its structural properties as filter or support.

CURRENT MARKET

Chitin and chitosan have multiple and highly varied applications. However, we are currently focusing on cosmetics, biodegradable films and the textile sector.
