PEF Plant Cell Extraction Requires Less Energy than Cooking
Press release date: November 14, 2012
A new cost-effective, low-energy PEF (pulsed electric field) process for the extraction of intracellular materials from algae and other vegetable or organic matter for bio-refining and wastewater pre-digestion has been introduced by Diversified Technologies, Inc. of Bedford, Massachusetts.
Diversified Technologies’ PowerMod™ PEF System for the extraction of intra- cellular materials from a biomass pumped in slurry features a chemical-free, non-thermal process using less energy than cooking. Applying 1 to 40 kV/cm high voltage pulses for 2 to 20 microseconds, this solid-state system breaks cell membranes and releases intracellular materials to the surrounding solution at about 10% of the cost of a thermal process, claims the firm.
Consisting of a high voltage pulse modulator, power supply, and treatment chamber, Diversified Technologies’ PowerMod™ PEF System is capable of up to 40 kl/hour throughput. Providing simple, push-button operation, this compact unit is 4 ft. tall and requires low maintenance. Applications include any biomass in slurry or other pumpable liquid.
Diversified Technologies’ PowerMod™ PEF System for plant cell extraction is priced from $500,000.00, depending upon configuration.
