After several expansions their portfolio continues to grow and with it Ultra’s commitment to help ensure Van Aroma continues to deliver quality and quantity along with long-term sustainability.

Starting as a collector with nutmeg and patchouli Van Aroma is now one of the largest exporters of these essential oils along with dozens more produced across the region.

Following large investments in its facility in 2015/16 Van Aroma now have capacity to distil close to 1,000MT of oil. Additionally a new re-working column (fine-fractionation) has increased its capacity.

Perhaps of most significance following its latest expansion are the benefits of its new flash distillation and reaction columns.

Flash distillation helps reduce times taken on other processes currently performed in the fractional distillation units therefore increasing the time available for oil processing in these units which will in turn increase capacity.

The new reaction column has recently taken its business into new and exciting directions as it can now offer a large portfolio of derivatives produced from natural essential oils.
