On November 1, the Ministry of agriculture and rural areas issued the recognition decision on 2020-2021 Shennong China Agricultural Science and technology award. The project of "establishment and application of key technologies for upgrading the whole pepper industry chain" jointly applied by Chenguang Biotechnology Group Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Chenguang Biotechnology) and the spice and Beverage Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Tropical Agricultural Sciences won the first prize of scientific research achievements of the award.
As the second completion unit of the award-winning project, Chenguang biology, relying on scientific and technological innovation, has mastered the production process and equipment core technology of plant extraction, supporting China's capsanthin industry to increase its share in the international market from less than 2% to more than 80%, and its products have also developed from a single capsanthin to natural pigments, natural spice extracts and essential oils, natural sweeteners, natural nutrition and medicinal extracts, health food There are more than 100 varieties in six series, including capsanthin, capsicum oleoresin and lutein, whose production and sales are leading in the world. In the face of fierce market competition, Chenguang biological innovation continues. In terms of pepper deep processing technology and product development, it has obtained 4 authorized invention patents, among which the patented technology "a device for preparing pepper oleoresin", which uses continuous steam distillation equipment to extract pepper essential oil, has the advantages of low cost, high yield and good effect; Another patent, "production method of high-purity piperine", fills the blank of large-scale production of piperine in China.
