Vegetable oil purification, by Green Lizard Technologies Ltd, Evonik Industries AG and FGV Applied Technologies Sdn Bhd

This international, multidisciplinary team has developed a novel technology for the palm oil industry to boost sustainability. It has demonstrated the potential to modify the way palm oil is processed and has shown it can practically eliminate free fatty acids and carcinogenic 3-MCPD in palm oil. The fundamentals of this technology allow application to a range of vegetable oils, and five families of patents have been filed to this effect. With the potential to significantly reduce operational complexity, the technology produces superior oil and provides assurances on food safety for the consumer - addressing all three dimensions of sustainability.

The full list of award is available here.
