20120918 Dishman Netherlands B.V. – Mrs. Mieke Sibeijn: Separation Scan of Dishman Cholesterol process.

Dishman recovers cholesterols from wool grease. Due to worsened wool grease quality, disturbing the process and leading to unacceptable cleaning frequencies, and having reached the limits of the current process (several decades lifetime) Dishman boarded on the Separation Scan program of the Dutch Government. The separation scan was executed by two independent experts J. Koole (Belgium) and Synthon (The Netherlands) and focused on the cleaning steps, the extraction process and the potential impact on the chromatographic purification. Several recommendations have been implemented right away and resulted in much less down time, materials saving and less waste. Additional in process dirt removal will be investigated, cleaning wool grease prior to processing seems attractive and new extraction column set-up will be implemented.

Dishman regards involving external experts of great advantage because of fresh insights. www.dishman-netherlands.com
