GEA Westfalia Separator Group GmbH is the leading company in the world in the field of mechanical separation. Since 1893, we have been building centrifuges used for separating liquids and liquid mixtures. Whether separators or decanters: the process lines of GEA Westfalia Separator Group combine high separating efficiencies, clarifying efficiencies and throughput capacities with maximum savings in terms of energy, water, production and disposal costs. Based on the experience gained with more than 3000 process applications and a procedure for rapidly translating innovations into marketable processes, we provide profitable answers to some of the most urgent questions of our time.

Role and main tasks within the project:

Goal for GEA Westfalia Separator is to increase sales of decanters and separators sold at this moment for processing the latex from the rubber tree and inulin from e.g. chicory. As a result, GEA Westfalia Separator will be able to exploit the separation technology developed in DRIVE4EU for the separation of rubber as well as inulin from Russian Dandelion in future assignments.
