Committed to Sustainability

At KitoZyme, we embrace environmental challenges and develop sustainable initiatives throughout the value chain. Our basic process is resolutely environmental as it consists of the recovering of a co-product from the production of citric acid. Indeed, following the extraction of citric acid, manufacturers seek to enhance the vegetative part of the fungus, which is called mycelium. This enables us to recover hundreds of tons of mycelium in order to create a product with high added value.

KitoZyme is also continuously aiming to reduce our ecological footprint. Our engineers are passionate about discovering the best solutions and here are some of the main projects related to this issue:

  • Highly ambitious programs for the reuse of water
  • Electricity is produced thanks to solar panels installed on the entire roof of our plant
  • Biomethanization of our rejects
