Functional Keratin Kerasol

Project description

New method for obtaining functional keratin

Keratin is a fibrous structural protein found in vertebrates, which has been used extensively in the cosmetics industry. Most current methods of keratin isolation from agricultural waste are based on very aggressive thermal and chemical treatments. As a result, the protein obtained is mostly denatured and lacking properties that make it attractive for industrial applications. The EU-funded KERASOL project aims to provide a new solution by optimising the keratin production process in a sustainable, reliable and cost-effective way using as a source a residual waste of meat processing. The production process is based on an exclusive technology and the unique resulting product preserves all the functional properties of keratin.
