PRODUCTION DEPATMENT - ECOMAAT DISTILLERY IN MIRKOVO


Ecomaat  processing and production plants are settled on a area of 4000 square meters and are situated in the village of Mirkovo in the central part of Bulgaria. The picturesque village is surounden by Stara Planina and Sredna Gora mountains at altitude of 600-800 m.
 

DISTILLERY UNIT


In our distillery we combine over 300 years of tradition in production of essential oils and Bulgarian know-how with new technologies and modern equipment. The automation of the process and its knowledge in the smallest details enables numerous optimizations for improving the energy efficiency and reducing production costs. The production cycle is completely wasteless - after processing the utilized plant materials are reused as material for compost and fertilization of the company's arable land or they are dried and used as ecological fuel for steam production instead diesel.
 

EXTRACTION UNIT 


At the territory of Ecomaat Distillery in Mirkovo is located our new plant for supercritical carbon dioxide extraction of oil-bearing raw materials, herbs and medicinal plants. Turned through the use of a modern technology applied by state-of-the-art equipment, there all year-round we derive new active ingredients and fragrances from fresh and dry herbage. The exclusive to Bulgaria equipment and technology, as well as the incredible variety of Bulgarian nature with regard to raw material resources allow us to produce globally unique natural extracts, suitable for development of new products and innovations in various fields of perfumery, cosmetics and skin care, food and beverage and pharmaceutical industries.

 

The aromatic products manufactured by Ecomaat Bulgaria are globally recognized and stated as standard for quality. Our clients are multinational corporations, distributors, wholesalers, processors, cosmetic and pharmaceutical giants, leading perfume houses, aromatherpists and end users from France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, USA, Japan, Australia and the Middle East.

 

STEAM DISTILLATION

   

SUPERCRITICAL CO2 EXTRACTION

The basic process for the production of essential oils is called distillation. In this, the essential oil is extracted from plant raw material with steam, and the separation of the volatile components is based on their different vapor pressures. Depending on the type of raw materials for processing, the available technological equipment at Ecomaat Distillery, enables production of essential oils and floral waters by water, water-steam and steam distillation. The principles of distillation are known since ancient times - and today they are fundamental in the production of essential oils, despite numerous improvements to the distillation equipment and processing technology of extraction. The main parameters that determine the quality of the essential oils during production are velocity and temperature of distillation process since the most  important factor remains the quality of raw materials processed. The proximity of our fields to Ecomaat Distillery in Mirkovo allows rapid entry of the raw material after harvest and immediately downstream processing without loss of fragrant molecules which in most cases is of crucial importance in improving the quality of the essential oils.    The extraction of active ingredients and essential oils with liquefied gases is a high-tech technology, recognized as the technology of the future in the production of natural aromatic products. This is a process in which, through utilization of specific equipment and "know-how", under certain conditions the properties of liquefied gases (most often carbon dioxide - CO2) are used as a solvent. Under high pressure and low operating temperature, the carbon dioxide goes into supercritical phase and the natural ingredients are derived from the plant material - aromatic molecules, active ingredients and vitamins without changing their properties, and preserving all thermo-sensitive substances. After completion of the process, the carbon dioxide is released in gaseous state leaving the extracted product absolutely clean and free of traces of the solvent. Ecomaat Ltd. is the only one company in Bulgaria possessing this unique technology and equipment, applied in industrial scale for the production of natural extracts with unknown purity and with new afromatic features and active properties.

ORGANIC AGRICULTURE


IFOAM
defines the organic farming as a "production system that sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people. It relies on ecological processes, biodiversity and cycles adapted to local conditions, rather than the use of inputs with adverse effects. Organic agriculture combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the shared environment and promote fair relationships and a good quality of life for all involved " Details of the principles of organic farming can be read on the official website of IFOAM here.

We at Ecomaat believe that organic farming is the foundation of sustainable development as the sole prerequisite for a possible future for next generations As part of the corporate vision and strategy for development, we adapted some basic principles of conventional agriculture, according to the fundamental requirements of organic farming. In our agricultural activities in the creation, maintenance and processing of essential oil bearing crops and our daily work we are guided by activities that:
► preserve the fertility of the earth and its organic activity to nourish the plants
► refrain from actions polluting soil and the environment
► do not include use of genetically modified products and ionizing impacts
► implement and use of green technologies
► are equitable and fair to the people working in the field
 
For cultivation of oil-bearing plants we use seeds of the best Bulgarian varieties and with certified origin. Our plantations are located in proven ecologically clean area in the heart of Stara Planina mountain. At an altitude of 800m Ecomaat's fields are the highest in Bulgaria, which is another prerequisite for growing organic produce. The use of fertilizers and chemicals for plant protection has been replaced with the inclusion of products allowed for organic farming, which are agreed in advance and confirmed for utilization by representatives of our certifying body. The agronomist experts of Ecomaat Ltd. have developed our own methodology for plant protection and in many cases the activites for fighting plant enemies and diseases and weeds control are manually accomplished.
