Use of Chitin & Derivatives

05/19/2008 5:29 PM

The usual extraction process required hydrochloric acid at elevated temperature, a new recovery process has been developed in a lab & has processed the discarded shells of our "home grown" crayfish l have also developed a growing system for crayfish so as to recover the exoskeleton after moulting for processing into chitin with results of 100% pure, 100% deaceatation & high molecular weight. Any suggestions as "where to now?"

Thanks Wayne

The shrimp shellers all over the world deal with chitin as tonnage polymer. I suggest you drill there.
