New Publication about Glucosylglycerol production and Nanofiltration

Glucosylglycerol (GG) is one of the main CARBAFIN targets that is an attractive compound for commercial applications in the cosmetics as well as the food industry. The enzymatic GG-production comes along with a high excess of glycerol, when using the enzyme sucrose phosphorylase. For the final product, glycerol needs to be removed and our CARBAFIN team found a good solution: nanofiltration. The researchers screened membranes at different varied pressure and temperature. The most suitable separation was achieved with a specific polyamide membrane and after 6 filtration cycles glycerol could be completely removed.
