Novasep and Mega Sign a Strategic Technology Partnership to Develop Whey Treatment Solutions for

the Dairy Industry

POMPEY, France and STRAZ POD RASKEM, Czech Republic, Nov. 5 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --


    - Electrodialysis and Manufacturing Process Companies Come Together to

Design the Most Cost-Effective Whey Demineralization Solutions Offering

Guaranteed Performance

    Novasep, a leading supplier of manufacturing solutions to the life

sciences industry, and Mega, a technology leader in electrodialysis, today

announce a strategic technology partnership in the field of whey treatment.

The companies will combine Mega's advanced electrodialysis technology with

the whey demineralization solutions from Novasep Process, the biomolecule

division of Novasep which provides purification process lines for the fields

of bio-industries, food ingredients, and biopharmaceuticals. This will enable

both partners to propose a range of cost-effective processes for all

qualities of demineralized whey, with guaranteed performance.

    The alliance brings a significant addition to the technology portfolio of

Novasep Process being able to now offer an even wider range of manufacturing

process solutions to customers in the dairy industry. The cooperation will

also provide Novasep Process with a better access to Central and Eastern

European as well as Indian markets in which Mega has a strong commercial

presence. Conversely, it will also increase the visibility of Mega's

electrodialysis technology in the other geographic zones through the active

promotion by Novasep and through its integration within global processes

guaranteed by Novasep.

    Today, alternate whey demineralization solutions using electrodialysis

are energy-consuming and require frequent replacement of membranes. On the

contrary, Mega's proprietary technology reduces electricity consumption and

provides a membrane lifetime guarantee for up to 4 years, strongly minimizing

maintenance costs. Mega and Novasep Process have designed a range of

processes optimized for any crude and demineralized whey qualities,

associating Mega's technology with Novasep Process technologies including ion

exchange and nanofiltration (NF). Through this alliance, Novasep Process'

offering includes process design and development, turn-key system

engineering, supply and commissioning, customer service and consumables.

    "I am delighted with Novasep Process' cooperation with Mega, a company

that is a technology leader in electro-membrane processes," said Antoine

Baule, president of Novasep Process. "This alliance further enriches Novasep

Process' portfolio of technologies and will enable us to better serve our

clients in the dairy industry for their whey processing requirements."

    This alliance in the process field enhances the capabilities of both

partners to better serve their respective customers in the field. Lubos

Novak, president and CEO of Mega, added, "Novasep is a global leader in

process solutions for food ingredient manufacturing. This partnership will

enable both companies to design strongly enhanced solutions, through

collaborative product and process development."
