Knowledge of the raw material, green coffee, was unsurpassed, and the end goal of the quality of the final product, roasted coffee, was perfectly defined and maximum quality demanded. The challenge was to find suitable technology and methods to achieve this simply and efficiently. Two parallel projects were created: one for coffees for export, and the other for coffee to be consumed locally. Bespoke versions of the TNA and TTA roaster range and TEC-ROLL grinders were used. The roasting and grinding plant was modernised and processes automated, resulting in maximum final product quality, bringing production methods in line with the rest of the Group. The roasting and grinding plant is currently on of the most modern in Latin America and is the benchmark for future Group projects.” “The project consisted of a completely new roaster, which enlarged an existing processing line, so the new line was much more versatile than the existing line, handling products that were much more difficult to process. The challenge was to manufacture a new product without reference to other producers with other equipment, as the process was completely novel, based on cocoa nibs and powder. The new roaster had to be larger than any manufactured before, producing up to 6,000 kg/h, 24 hours a day. The combination of our engineering department’s expertise and the client’s product knowledge enabled all of the objectives to be achieved. Continuing excellent results are guarantees with the JCP cocoa roasting range, which was created out of this project and is now used in projects in other countries.” “The project was to build a roaster that could process nuts, seeds and cereals, using extremely versatile and modern systems to precisely replicate very traditional products. The Middle East is an extremely demanding region for dried nut, seed and cereal production, as their dietary and religious traditions are based on these. Automation and flexibility in the design of the new CRG roaster meant that it could adapt to air flows, operating temperatures and synchronisation speeds to precisely replicate traditional processes using the most modern technology possible, ensuring food safety and process reliability. Today, this technology is applied on a larger scale in many countries in the region. The new technology has enabled these products to be exported between countries in the Gulf area, while complying with strict international food regulations in full.” “The project involved recycling the wood shavings and sawdust created during production of the boards that are eventually made into pencils. Pencil manufacturing produces large quantities of wood shavings that are not generally used. However, the quality of the wood (usually cedar) in this case was so good that the client proposed transporting the shavings to a boiler where they could be burned to produce energy for use in the factory. Burning wood in a boiler produces smoke, so an air purification system was also required.
A series of ducts was installed throughout the factory, to transport the sawdust from each saw to the main boiler for burning. A smoke reburn system, very similar to those used for coffee roasters, was adapted to the boiler’s smoke extraction exhaust to reduce the environmental impact of the boiler to a minimum.
Thanks to this project, the factory has eliminated unnecessary wood wastage and made significant energy savings, using the central boiler as a heat source to provide hot water and energy for the entire factory complex.”
“The project was very ambitious and demanding, as it consisted of modernising roasting equipment already in use to comply with the strict environmental standards that the Group wanted to implement in all their factories worldwide. This meant that processes in each of these factories and their relation to the end product had to be understood, although these often varied between factories. Operations in each facility also had to be investigated, and all of this information brought together to create a standard, homogeneous solution that could be used in any roaster in the Group, for any end product. The most susceptible equipment was modernised in a very short timescale, causing significant energy savings and reducing atmospheric emissions dramatically, with the investment in time and money optimised to the maximum. Thanks to the Tec-ABC project, other similar international groups adopted the same environmental model, which is now the international standard.” BONAL Africa – Coffee “The project consisted of creating the first specialised coffee factory in Africa, producing coffee in any format: natural or torrefacto [coffee beans roasted with sugar]; coffee for the catering industry or for drinking at home; coffee in large parcels or small; traditional formats or novel, such as coffee capsules; and coffee for the domestic market in Algeria, where CAFÉ BONAL originated, or for North and West Africa (CEDEAO/ECOWAS).
A coffee processing plant was designed with a capacity of 7,000 kg/h roasted coffee beans, with areas dedicated to each flavour and packaging format. The project was designed without any previous experience in coffee production, using expertise in other agrifood products, where the Client is the undisputed market leader.
Three years after project approval, CAFÉ BONAL has the capacity, both in quantity and quality, to meet requirements for any coffee type marketed in North Africa and the CEDEAO/ECOWAS countries, becoming the largest exporter of coffee produced in Africa and creating one of the most prestigious brands on the African continent”.
