Keen to get away from traditional chitosan production using crustacean shells, KitoZyme's technology enables for the first time ever the production of high-purity vegetable chitosan, exclusively from renewable, non-GMO sources without any synthetic manipulations.
KitoZyme has thus patented the process setting of a unique benchmark for the production of vegetable biopolymers and particularly chitosan, chitin-glucan andtheir derivatives.
From 2008 to 2009 we at KitoZyme built a leading-edge 4,000m²-production area and a separate 150m²-cGMP unit that is divided as described below:
- a class 10.000 (ISO 7) production floor of 80 m²: the clean room
- a class 10.000 (ISO 7) filling room of 10 m²
- a class 100.000 (ISO 8) laundry of 10 m²
- a QC laboratory of 40 m² located in a grey zone.
The production facilities are made up of various different key areas. These include three production lines, a flexible clean room, an extensive storage area and a testing and a QC Laboratory.
