American Natural Processors of Cherokee, Iowa, is expanding into the former Maple River Energy biodiesel plant in Galva, shown above in this 2011 file photo.

GALVA, Iowa | American Natural Processors, a Cherokee, Iowa-based company that specializes in organic and non-GMO specialty foods, recently expanded to Galva, Iowa.
The expansion, which consisted of purchasing and remodeling an existing diesel plant, cost around $10 million plus real estate.
Mark Schuett, owner of American Natural Processors, said the company chose the Galva location because the facility was easy to retrofit and remodel into a food-grade vegetable oil plant.
The expansion is nearly finished, said Chief Operating Officer Sam Jennett. Once completed, the soy concentration system will be able to run continuously.
“The biodiesel plant had a lot of existing usable features,” Schuett said.
At the new Galva location, the company produces algal oil, an edible alternate oil product, and soy protein concentrate, which is used to make easier-to-digest food for fish and baby pigs.
The move is a big step toward increasing the company's algal oil production. The home plant in Cherokee is only able to accommodate small-scale algal oil production.
“One of the things we’re doing that's pretty unique is we crush algae to get the oil out," Schuett said. “Then we refine that oil into really unique edible oil products.”
Currently employing around 15 people, the company hopes to hire a total of 25-35 people once the plant is fully upgraded.
single use medical supplies. But more specifically, I've been wondering about the continuation of the PHA supply for Pharmafilter and, well, this is the likely connection though I was reasonably sure they were still working together regardless of the personnel connection.

Sweet, thanks, - paying attention to the dog and and accidentally down-thumbed you (We'll both move on), better to explain as wood and plant waste .

With an order of #$%$ 10 million at the Rotterdam Erasmus Medical Centre startup Pharmafilter seems ready for the international breakthrough of their recycling. This year the company achieves three major projects in the Netherlands, several foreign parties show concrete interest.
At first glance related to the product of the company nothing recycling. Instead of separate waste collection in the hospital, go to the start-up everything in the same bin. Infusion bags, used scalpels, bandages, but also bedpans and food particles are removed by a grinder through the sewer.
At the end of the sewer Pharmafilter goes to work. With a self-designed fermentation and purification biological components are converted into energy. Water is purified and cleansed of drug residues. The generated methane gas provides 60% of the energy of the system. At the end of the line leaves a limited residual flow of, among other conventional plastic and small metal residues.
Erasmus MC with a size of 450,000 m², the largest university hospital in the Netherlands. The healthcare company puts a little more than #$%$ 1.3 billion to. About a quarter of the Netherlands is operated by the hospital. On a busy day, there are about 15,000 patients, visitors and staff present. The system of Pharmafilter into operation in 2017.
The promises that makes the young company, are unpalatable. Pharmafilter says it can improve patient safety at lower cost and less environmental damage. To make the system work Pharmafilter developed a biodegradable bedpan, the grinder and the system that the solid and liquid waste streams from the stands and treats. The system and method are global patented. "We have not only the phone, but the phone protected," says co-founder Maikel Batelaan (50).
Existing practice within a hospital that has been collected waste separately. It creates a huge logistical operation. "Each department has six different bins." Everything
Xylose is C5 sugar that is quite difficult for many current biotech platforms to convert. It is one of the component 'waste' sugars of cellulose and hemi-cellulose. It's about feedstock flexibility.

I'm not holding my breath but I think you're right in that this is the best chance for some good developments in a while. They started working with the Natick center back in 2005 and I thought any projects died of neglect. I was completely surprised to see this.
Rotterdam's Erasmus Medical Centre attracts #$%$ 10 million for recycling. The hospital today signed a contract for the acquisition of the Pharmafilter system.
Writes that the FD. The innovative recycling system should be ready for use in 2017. Once operational Pharmafilter resulting in less volume of waste, pollution tax and transportation costs. Erasmus Medical Center expects to recoup the investment within ten years.
Pharmafilter offers an alternative to the labor-intensive recycling policies in hospitals. "Each department has six different bins. Yet a third of the waste is contaminated with things that do not belong in that stream, "said Pharmafilter director Eduardo van den Berg at the FD.
The Pharmafilter system works with patented Tonto-grinders. The grinders replace separate bins and handle almost any type of waste. From food to biodegradable pots. Through internal hospital sewage grinding waste ends up in a fermentation and purification on the hospital. The installation disinfected, fermented and purifies. What remains is biofuel, purified water and a small amount of plastic and metal scraps.
Previously went ZorgSaam care institution, the Reinier de Graaf Hospital in Delft and Rotterdam Sint Franciscus Hospital in sea Pharmafilter. The results are positive. Erasmus MC is the largest teaching hospital in the Netherlands.
•"Immediately advances awareness of Cologuard among health care providers as Exact Sciences simultaneously expands its sales force to 200 professionals during 2015".
Is this viewed as an alternative to the doubling of the sales force through direct hiring? Is the thinking these folks have the contacts and knowledge base, so rather than accumulating fixed costs of hiring an in-house sales force try this for a year and see the results?
