W R Grace and Co inked a global licensing agreement to supply Trisyl 150IE silica to Bunge Limited, an agribusiness and food company, for use in its enzymatic interesterification technology to process edible oils.
The new technology is a healthier, more efficient alternative hydrogenation, a process that has been the industry standard, but is being phased out by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) by 2018.
Based on immobilising enzymes, Bunge’s new process produces no trans fats, requires fewer processing steps, occurs naturally at a lower, energy-saving temperature and improves the stability of vegetable oil.
Chris Dayton, director, fats and oils processing, Bunge, said, “We are pleased to partner with Grace, a global leader in silica technology, to develop Trisyl 150IE silica, which materially ends the life of the enzymes, making our process even more efficient.”
Al Beninati, president, Grace Materials Technologies and Speciality Catalysts, said, “Trisyl silica has broad functionality. We have tailored this unique grade for Bunge’s new oil processing technology, which has tremendous potential.”
“Grace is excited about the opportunity to work with an industry leader to play an important role in this emerging, greener, healthier technology,” he added.
