Direct and Indirect biorefinery technologies for conversion of organic side-streams into multiple marketable products
36 months (from 1/11/2016)
If feasible, a (partial) alternative to traditional imported protein sources would be available, while at the same time underspent organic side-streams could be valorised, and local European insect-farming industry could be boosted.
Funded by the European Union (H2020), the InDIRECT consortium will look into this challenge within a 3-year project.
What if the production of useful proteins, lipids and comparable resources from underspent organic side-streams would be profitable at an industrial scale?
What if insects would play a useful role in this process?
