Lactic acid and biosurfactants sourced from sustainable agricultural and industrial (food) WASTE feedstocks as novel FUNCtional ingredients for consumer products. The WASTE2FUNC project aims to resolve supply chain hurdles towards the efficient conversion of food (crop) waste into two types of biobased functional molecules for use in home- and personal care applications: lactic acid and microbial biosurfactants.
We are delighted to reach this milestone with Arbiom, as this achievement is essential in scaling up the company’s industrial biotechnology to commercial production.
The Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant looks forward to working with Arbiom to build on this successful demonstration as the company continues to scale-up its process technology.
The grand challenge of the SYLFEED demonstration project is to scale-up and validate the bio-refinery process that converts lignocellulose into SCP suitable to formulate fish feed.
Demeter: Demonstrating more efficient enzyme production to increase biogas yields.
DEMETER will increase the yield of the fermentation process at an industrial scale as well as the down-stream processing of a C1-based biogas enzyme, reducing the cost of the end product and making the enzyme available for wide-spread application in biogas production throughout Europe.
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.
