EDMONTON, Alberta & IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Radient Technologies Inc. ("Radient"), an innovator in the extraction of
natural ingredients from natural biomass, and Gencor, a leading,
worldwide supplier of science-driven herbal extracts, today announced a
partnership to develop high-value natural compounds for the food,
beverage, nutraceutical and other niche industries.
The Radient/Gencor partnership represents an opportunity to rapidly
identify and exploit new herbal extracts; to significantly improve
quality, processing time, and production costs for existing extracts;
and, ultimately, to reduce the time to market and cost of new and
incumbent natural actives within the Gencor brand.
To the partnership, Radient brings its patented microwave-assisted
processing extraction technology, or MAPTM, which
significantly improves the cost, recovery and purity of natural actives
relative to conventional methods. Gencor, for its part, brings a
science-driven expertise in the development of natural ingredients that
improve quality of life, and a distribution channel that reaches
blue-chip and growth customers alike in 50 countries.
"We have long known Gencor as a leader in
scientifically-validated, premium ingredients in this field, and are
excited they recognize MAP™ as a valuable product
development and production asset," said Denis Taschuk, President and
CEO of Radient.
“A year ago, Gencor commissioned Radient to make an extract from a
locally-grown herb. Radient not only accomplished this expeditiously,
but also improved yields, significantly reducing costs,” said Jith
Veeravalli, President of Gencor.“For the long term, Radient’s
expertise and North American facility will help Gencor bring to market
more innovative products at even more competitive prices.”
Radient extracts natural compounds from a range of biological materials
using microwave assisted processing ("MAP™"), a patented technology
platform which provides superior customer outcomes in terms of
ingredient purity, yield, and cost. From its initial 20,000 square foot
manufacturing plant in Edmonton, Alberta, Radient serves market leaders
in industries that include pharmaceutical, food, beverage, natural
health, personal care and biofuel markets. Visit www.radientinc.com
