About us

Phytochem Products Inc., a startup venture based on Tohoku University research,
realize healthy longevity in an ageing society providing natural biomass derived health functional ingredients safely, naturally and inexpensively.

Biomass resources such as plants contain various highly functional materials that help people's lives and promote health. The current technology for extracting these materials has limitations: requiring large volumes of solvent (such as methanol); being inefficient; and being difficult to scale. This is reflected in the high price of natural biomass derived materials, and fossil fuel derived materials have become an inexpensive substitute.
We now provide a safer, natural and environmentally sustainable alternative.
We developed a new technology to efficiently extract highly functional materials from biomass that would become waste. Our technology goal is to provide an environmentally sustainable solution that is scalable for mass production. Our business goal is to contribute to the new regional economy through collaboration between agriculture and industry.



The Ion Exchange Resin Method

Flow type reaction separation system from Tohoku University Ion exchange resins have been used as a separation medium in water.
Our ion exchange resin method is a revolutionary flow-type reaction separation technology that was the first to apply ion exchange resins as a catalyst in bio-mass derived oil separation. We use a solid catalyst, so various materials can be extracted from bio-mass derived oil, simply by exchanging the catalyst columns. We start with agricultural bio-mass waste products as the raw materials, process it through our ion exchange resin technology, to create commercial products that we consume in our daily lives, such as foods, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and fuels.
