CSIRO and ClextralExtrusion Porosfication Technology (EPT) was developed by Clextral in collaboration with Australian company Inovo, and CSIRO has the world’s only pilot-scale equipment at their food innovation centre in Werribee, Victoria. The patented EPT process involves the spray drying of products and ingredients with a high amount of solids, which delivers a unique porosified powder structure.

‘We’ve worked closely with CSIRO in Australia for a number of years now, and combining the skills of CSIRO’s food scientists with the only pilot-scale EPT equipment in the world is a great opportunity for business innovation,’ said Alain Brisset, Clextral’s Key Markets Global Manager

International food manufacturers are developing brand new food products and reducing their energy use with the help of CSIRO scientists and an innovative food processing technology.
