Candelilla Institute starts Viability Studies for New Technologies Application.
JAN. 21/2005

With the collaboration of the Research Center in Applied Chemistry (Centro de Investigación en Química Aplicada “CIQA” in Spanish), Candelilla Institute has started activities to determine the economic viability of applying new technologies in Candelilla wax production.

Solvent based-extraction processes are being analyzed, whose experimental results have shown significantly higher wax production yields, as well as better product quality, compared with the traditional process that operates with sulfuric acid.
