Ipecac alkaloid extraction, shortening the supply chain

The DPS in house laboratory is currently experimenting with processing facillitites that crush the roots into a kind of soup from where a much higher concentration of Ipecac alkaloids is derived. This would then allow for direct extraction of Ipecac alkaloids on site.

The advantage is better operational margins as well as a lower carbon footprint as less waste is distributed from source. End 2019 this process is expected to be fully operationalized.
