Nutraceuticals and other health products are considered high value, low volume products. Their price per kilogram is significantly higher than that of biofuels, but the market size, while large, is significantly smaller than the global fuel market. These markets also require greater control over contamination and other quality control issues that are better addressed with closed and tightly controlled systems.
Bionavitas has adapted its bioreactor designs to meet the needs of these additional high value markets. Technology allows production at a higher volume density than any current production method - offering a significant cost advantage.
