SiliCycle expands!

SiliCycle adds 21,000 square feet to the existing plant for biomass extraction & ingredient purification

This $16 millions investment will allow SiliCycle to increase the production capacity of currently marketed products, but will also enable the development and production of plant, forest, and marine biomass extracts via a new Extraction-Purification technologic platform. These ingredients can also be purified to pharmaceutical grade and scale, and benefit from SiliCycle's established expertise in purification.

The project includes, among other things, the addition of numerous specialized equipment and a large-scale production area (CMO) that complies with good manufacturing practices (GMP). Thus, ingredients such as polyphenols, omega-3, and purified extracts and ingredients addressing the pharmaceutical industry but also the food, nutraceutical, natural health products, animal nutrition, and cosmetic industries will be marketed.
