The week of November 14th, the NORVENTO team went to Valencia to operate the Down Stream Process (DSP) unit of the Neosuccess project. The DSP purifies the succinic acid obtained in the Up Stream Process (USP) by removing residual sugars and other unwanted components.
During the visit, the NORVENTO team, together with IVEM and INNOSERVIS (installers), carried out some maintenance and repairing work on the different equipment that makes up the DSP. Both manual and automatic tests were also performed to confirm that the unit is ready to operate a batch when the next representative batch of fermentation broth is obtained.
