Chemical Engineering and Design Division and cGMP pilot plant of IIIM, Jammu is engaged in process development and scale-up of laboratory processes on pilot plant. Generally extraction processes are carried out on various herbal/medicinal plants. These extraction processes are scaled-up from 100/500 g laboratory-scale to 15-20 kg pilot plant scale processes. Thereafter their various process parameters are optimized, in order to maximize the yield of these extractions.
The extraction process carried out with the help of appropriate solvent and process of extraction optimization shall be done either aqueous, alcoholic or hydro-alcoholic.
