Herbal & Phytochemicals

Phytochemicals / Herbal Extraction Plant (Aqua & Solvent)

All the plants / herbs have very complex structure. Most of the active ingredients present in the form of natural organic compounds. The process of extraction for a particular compound or multiple compounds are dependent on the solubility of the rich components in an extraction media such as aqua (water) or organic solvent or a mixture of organic solvents by using the principle of physical separation and the property of solubility of those compounds in that particular extraction media.

The process and the plant design of extraction system is invariably different from product to product and component to component. It’s very difficult to generalize a process to extract isolated compounds from various herbs. From raw material to isolated compound, a series of processes will be involved. In the first step of process, the rich compound(s) can be extracted in a generalized manner with an extraction media. The second stage is followed by purification and isolation by various physical / chemical processes.

From a generalized extraction process, the rich herbal extracts can be used directly in herbal formulations for herbal, pharmaceuticals, food and cosmetic industries. Some of the herbal extracts can be used as natural dyes for textile, leather, food and cosmetic applications as coloring matters.

Natural Colours

SSP offers vegetable/natural dye manufacturing plant. There is a big demand of vegetable/natural dye in the whole world as it is a replacement for chemical dye. Vegetable dye is used in textile as well as food industries.

The process involves extraction of coloring liquor from vegetable waste like onion peel, pomegranate (Anar), mango (Aam), Harda, etc. and then concentration and spray drying to make powder.

This is a highly profitable project. Space requirement is only 300 sq. yard.

Spirulina Algae Powder Plant

Spirulina is one of the most balanced and the most digestible plant protein source. It contains various types of nutrients, vitamins and minerals which act as an excellent source of healthy and nutritious diet.

Therefore it is used as a food supplement and as a treatment for malnutrition. Beside this, spirulina algae powder is widely used for various commercial and industrial purposes. To cater the needs of several food processing and commercial industries, we design, manufacture and implement spirulina algae powder plants at affordable prices.

Manufacturing process of Spirulina Algae Powder

To manufacture high-grade spirulina algae powder, many steps are required to be implemented which comprise:


As a first step, spirulina algae’s is cultured in open-pond systems (which include raceway-type ponds & lakes) or in a closed system called photo-bioreactor (which includes a pond covered with a greenhouse).


In second step spirulina algae’s is harvested using micro screens, froth flotation, chemical flocculants, auto flocculation or other ultrasound-based methods.


In final and important step we extract algae powder from these harvested spirulina algae’s through different type of methods. All these three steps include nine processes:

  • Filtration and Cleaning
  • Pre-concentration
  • Concentration
  • Neutralization
  • Disintegration
  • Dehydration
  • Packing
  • Storage
  • Quality control

By manufacturing spirulina algae powder plant, we facilitate all above processes in a proper manner without much effort and time. For this purpose, our experienced and professional experts fabricate specific machines in diverse standard ranges using advance technology. We also have the facilities to customize these spirulina algae powder plants as per the individual requirements of the clients.


  • For nourishment & treatment of various diseases- Spirulina algae powder is a great source of nourishment not only for human but also for aqua cultures, birds, pets & animals. It has higher protein compared to meat like beef, chicken, eggs and grains like soybeans, rice or wheat.
  • For food processing & cosmetic industries- Spirulina algae powder is used as natural colors in a variety of food and cosmetic products. This powder is extensively used in food & beverage, ice cream, skin care product, shampoos & dyes manufacturing industries.

For commercial & industrial uses- Spirulina algae powder has diverse commercial & industrial applications. It is used as a bio plastic; feed stock, pharmaceutical, pollution control, CO2 sequestration, fertilizer runoff reclamation, sewage treatment and a multitude of different purposes.
