Alfa Laval´s involvement in the field of industrial fermentation started already in the 1890´s with a centrifuge for harvesting of baker´s yeast. Today equipment from all of Alfa Laval´s key product areas - fluid handling, separation and heat transfer - is used in each step in the yeast production process, from molasses pretreatment and fermentation to dewatering and waste disposal.
