Baker’s Yeast and Yeast Extract Factory
Location: Harbin, China
Scope: Overall process design and build of new baker’s yeast and yeast extract factory in China.
Briggs of Burton were involved in the complete design and build of a new yeast production facility located in Harbin, China between 2008-2010. The yeast factory was designed to produce 60,000 Te/yr of ‘Y-30’ yeast cells, (approximately 15,000 Te/yr of yeast on a dry weight basis) using molasses as a feedstock.
The factory provides yeast to two other on site factories, including a yeast extract facility also built by Briggs of Burton and a bakers yeast drying plant for high activated-dried-yeast (HADY).
