AMT – Microwave Innovation in the Pipeline

-Precision microwave processing of flowing materials:

-up to 62% more Biogas from microwave pre-treatment of AD feedstocks…
-improved shelf life, flavour and retention with faster, lower temperature pasteurisation…
-prevents MAP in milk surviving pasteurisation…
-accelerates extraction of valuable chemicals from plants…
-makes waste and bi-products safe with microwave sterilisation

“AMT microwave technology is a real ‘game-changer’ in the world of biotechnology.”

AMT is revolutionising the pre-treatment of materials for Biotechnology. AMT’s microwave pre-treatment in Anaerobic Digestion breaks down tough feedstock materials and makes more of it available to the AD process. This technique has boosted Biogas output by up to 62% in trials! AMT’s technology can also sterilise the waste products after AD for safe disposal.

“A lower cost solution than HPP pasteurisation, with more benefits.”

AMT’s precision heating of products in a flow process, means no hot surfaces or hot spots, just consistent delivery of heat throughout. Microbes are killed off at lower temperatures and with shorter retention times.

AMT microwave technology can improve any application needing fast and efficient heating in a flow process. This includes the precision heating of materials for Industrial Biotechnology, Food and Drink, Dairy, Fragrances and Flavours, Health, Research Labs, Universities, Waste Treatment, Anaerobic Digestion, and many more.

Working with clients

Our scientists have an initial consultation with you about your requirements under NDA. Recognising the clients may not have previously used microwave technology we develop a test protocol. This is developed using Design of Experiments to reduce the number test points and get to the optimum process in the fastest way. This protocol fully documents the client’s interaction with AMT in terms of objectives, scope, approach, reporting, timing, costs and responsibilities. If there are any significant risk factors, these are identified and mitigating actions recorded. We have a wide range of equipment available to suit most flow rate and processing conditions, including temperature, pressure and retention time.

 

Working with partners and universities

We have an excellent track record with Innovate UK and working with collaborators to deliver innovative processes. Our team are all trained in Prince 2 Project management, Risk Assessment and Analytical Problem Solving using the world-class Kepner Tregoe (KT) method. These skills form the basis of our collaboration success.

When the Oil Runs Out, Head for the Woods!

You may not have heard of it but it is one of the most abundant materials on earth. Lignin is the tough cellulose material at the heart of woody plants. When fossil fuel reserves are eventually exhausted, the essential by-products of refining will no longer be available. Since these aromatic chemicals are used in many processes including the manufacture of …
