The Rhamnolipid Production Process

Rhamnolipid Production 2017

We maintain significant trade secret information regarding our rhamnolipid production process. We are finally able to produce and process this material in a cost-effective manner. The Company has invested heavily in developing many trade secrets that increase production yield to a level whereby it now has a significant competitive advantage.

Rhamnolipid is produced by fermentation process similar to those used to produce beer, yogurt, or any other fermented product. Bacteria is added to a fermentation tank and provided a nutrient source (substrate) and under properly controlled conditions the result will be a crude Rhamnolipid mixture. Rhamnolipid are extracted within a short cycle, extensively processed to remove any residual bacteria, purified, and the resultant mixture diluted into a final product. The amount and mixture of Rhamnolipid material in the final solution can be precisely controlled. The Rhamnolipid mixture can be further refined to produce certain foaming characteristics, mixed according to customer specifications, including production as a solution or as a powder.
