Eevia Health Plc: Eevia Health Plc completed first phase of a planned capacity increase and plant improvement

Eevia Health Plc, (”Eevia” or ”The Company”), has installed new capacities and automation equipment for processing and evaporation of natural plant extract liquids. As of August 1st, the newly installed machines and technologies are working satisfactorily, with improved yield, productivity, and cost efficiency. These investments support the company’s strong growth and strategic positioning, as communicated in the May 2021 information memorandum.

To enable Eevia to serve the large multi-year sales agreements, which have been reported earlier, as well as accept new larger sales contracts, Eevia business plan for 2021 includes two investment phases in new equipment. These investments support the company’s strong growth and strategic positioning in global nutraceutical markets, as communicated in the May 2021 information memorandum. Eevia is now pleased to inform that the first phase of the program has been completed successfully.

The investments include (i) a new loading-thawing system, which reduces the process time significantly, with reductions in related personnel needs; (ii) a new falling film evaporator for the evaporation of extract liquids and regeneration of organic solvents, increasing evaporation capacity by 500%; (iii) a new active cooler, which supplements a passive (air) cooler, and ensures constant cooling temperature all year around; and (iv) a new automated separator (disk stack centrifuge), another important liquid-solid separation equipment. The new separator will significantly improve clarification of extract liquids and increase capacity with 400%.

These investments are fundamentally important to enable Eevia to deliver towards its committed contract volumes and to achieve planned growth and was one key reason for recent IPO. The new equipment brings Eevia one step closer to the target of being a leading global provider of organically certified nutraceutical ingredients.
