Case Studies

PhosphonicS in the natural extracts industry

Due to the nature of the environment in which the plant and animal based sources of natural extracts grow and mature, unwanted contaminants can find their way into the end product which is destined for human use.

The effective removal of unwanted traces of heavy metals improves the success rate of meeting regulatory customer requirements and opens up new market opportunities for the producers of traditional remedies.

Ease of use, flexible formats

PhosphonicS can supply functionalised silica products in a wide range of formats for ease of use at different scales of operation.

Our heavy metal impurity removal products are applied either in slurry mode with overhead stirring or in a fixed bed mode. Whatever the scale of your production, we work with you to provide the right solution which is tailored to your needs.
