ANDRITZ showcases award-winning extraction technology at Anuga FoodTec 2024


International technology group ANDRITZ will present its comprehensive range of solutions for dewatering, drying and automation in the food industry at Anuga FoodTec from 19 to 22 March 2024 in Cologne, Germany.

Among the highlights is ANDRITZ’s innovative extraction system, which will receive the prestigious International FoodTec Award.

Turbex to receive gold medal

ANDRITZ recently developed the highly efficient Turbex extraction system for the production of functional nutrients. Using patented technology, it extracts high-quality nutrients from botanicals and natural products and turns side streams such as orange peel or brewer’s spent grain into revenue-generating materials. Turbex delivers up to 50% higher yields and consumes up to 30% less energy than conventional extraction methods.

On March 19, at Anuga FoodTec, Turbex will be awarded a gold medal under the International FoodTec Award from the German Agricultural Society, which has recognized groundbreaking developments in innovation, sustainability and efficiency in the food technology sector since 1994.

A mobile Turbex unit will be showcased at the ANDRITZ stand (B091) in Hall 5.1.

Leading the way in innovation with Food Innovation Xperience center

Another highlight ANDRITZ will present at Anuga is the recently opened Food Innovation Xperience center for food and feed processing including alternative proteins. This development and technology center offers customers and research institutes the opportunity to conduct feasibility studies and pilot plant tests for scale-up or R&D activities under food grade or even ATEX conditions.
