Swedish agritech company BoMill AB (”BoMill”) is currently developing a high capacity sorting equipment, able to sort the highest level of industry standard sorting volumes (up to 15 tons of grains per hour). Having confirmed the principles of the new equipment in testing, BoMill is now moving ahead, focusing on setting a plan for commercialization. The new equipment is aimed to be launched during Q2 2022.
BoMill's patented sorting technology is built on near-infrared technology in transmittance mode (NIR-T). Using this technology, the grains are sorted according to the kernels’ internal qualities, such as occurrence of toxins or protein content. Compared to traditional optical sorting, this technology results in fractions of grains with unique and more homogeneous qualities. This sorting procedure, based on internal qualities of the kernel, makes industrial processes more efficient and allows for less waste.
With the development of the new high-capacity equipment this technology will be made available for increased market segments– with a sorting capacity of up to 15 tons/hour, reaching the highest level of industry standard sorting volumes.
"We are very pleased to have reached this milestone, where our tests confirm the principles of our high capacity solution. Furthermore, we are convinced that this solution will make a significant difference in the market, making our new sorting technology available on a larger scale than before", says Andreas Jeppsson, CEO of BoMill. "Having a high capacity is important for industrial players, and this is where our new solution will meet the market demands."
The new high-capacity equipment is flexible and scalable in terms of capacity, with an attractive TCO (total cost of ownership) for customers. The equipment is designed with customer utility in mind and fits into the workflows of large production sites. Also, the sustainability aspect is significant:
"Sustainability is in the DNA of BoMill and a vital part of the agriculture and food industry and our solution matches right into the modernization of those industries – optimizing processes and reducing waste. Avoiding food waste and increasing food safety are two crucial areas for sustainable population growth, globally. In the end, with our solution, every grain can be used for what its best suited for", says Andreas Jeppsson.
The new technology by BoMill has the potential to revolutionize the entire supply chain in the grain industry delivering values for producers, grain handlers, processing industry and consumers. The overall market for current sorting machines is valued to approximately USD 2 billion.
BoMill’s recently recruited CTO, Fredrik Nilsson, has brought valuable expertise to further support the ongoing development. The company is currently focusing on confirming and scaling the results, as well as setting a precise plan for commercialization. The goal is to launch the new high-capacity equipment during Q2 2022.
