Lactic acid and biosurfactants sourced from sustainable agricultural and industrial (food) WASTE feedstocks as novel FUNCtional ingredients for consumer products

Project description

Food waste conversion for consumer goods

Agricultural and industrial food waste can be converted into raw materials used to make consumer products. The EU-funded WASTE2FUNC project will convert food and crop waste into bio-based functional molecules, lactic acid and microbial biosurfactants for the household and healthcare products industries. It will establish a sustainable biomass waste supply chain in close collaboration with the primary sector by developing an appropriate registration and collection system for erratic agricultural biomass waste and integrating this new biomass supply chain into the existing industrial one, which is currently converting this biomass into biogas. WASTE2FUNC will involve all relevant stakeholders, reduce CO2 emissions, increase value from waste and create high-tech jobs.
