TORSKAL offers you tailor-made support throughout your research and development stages of innovative natural ingredients. With its expertise in eco-processes, we support you in the development and optimization of more environmentally friendly extraction processes, by working on two main axes: the use of innovative and efficient technologies (ASE350…) and the use of green solvents. This allows us to identify the major compounds, isolate and characterize the biomolecules according to the green chemistry.
