Posted on Posted in News

Recently, the seven project partners launched the new Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) demonstration project entitled ‘PULP2VALUE’ in Roosendaal, The Netherlands. Led by agro-industrial cooperative Royal Cosun, this 4-year project aims to demonstrate an integrated and cost-effective cascading biorefinery system to refine sugarbeet pulp and isolate high value products for a great variety of end products including detergents, paints, coatings and composites but also for applications in the personal care, oil and gas industry.

Sugar beet pulp (SBP) accounts for approx. 13 million tonnes in Europe and is a major residual stream from the sugar beet industry, which is currently valorised as low value feed and/or green gas. In order to increase the value of its side streams, PULP2VALUE developed multiple extraction techniques to isolate more valuable products from this large fraction of sugar beet pulp.
