Final Report - SAFEWASTES (Evaluating physiological and environmental consequences of using organic wastes after technological processing in diets for livestock and humans)

Project ID: 513949
Funded under: FP6-FOOD

Abstract

This is the final report for the SAFEWASTES project, which received funding under the European Commission's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). It grouped academic staff and food industry small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with expertise in phytochemistry, microbiology, nutrition, veterinary medicine, feed technology and manufacturing, as well as in environmental protection, to develop innovative biotechnological processes for food and herb wastes from the plant-based industry to recover valuable compounds.

The report begins with stating that industrial organic waste could turn into healthy feed and then states the project goals. It then covers the activities of the project, namely the phytochemical evaluations, as well as in vitro and in vivo testing to validate the recovery processes. The main results and conclusions are also stated in detail. The report concludes with the dissemination activities.
