Research on extraction and formulation intensification processes for natural actives of wine

Objective

The Wine industry is an important sector for the EU economy and the development of new wine-related products could lead to sustainable growth and development of the sector.
WineSense proposes to improve the extraction process to catch most of the active parts of the polyphenols (present in grapes), to define a suitable formulation for pharmaceutical applications, food, and cosmetics additives based on Solvent Free Microwave Extraction,Microwave Assisted Extraction (MAE), and emulsion-Template techniques combining high pressure and antisolvent effects.
WineSense combines the efforts of industry and academia in order to optimize the polyphenol extraction and formulation techniques, intensifying the process and reducing the loss in antioxidant capacity. Only thus we can synthesize an actual active compound that is suitable for health, food and wellness applications, in response to the models and innovative approaches of natural products and the challenges of the European Knowledge-Based-Bioeconomy. This project sets the framework for the transfer of knowledge and long-term collaboration between 3 industrial and 1 academic partners in the field of extraction and formulation of most of the active part of polyphenols (soluble and non-soluble).
ToK and collaboration will be fostered through mutual exchange of researchers: 11 researchers from academia and industry will be involved in 88 months of secondments; 2 of them will be experienced researchers recruited to complement the consortium capabilities (36 months of recruitment).
Additionally, this project aims at creating strong impact in the involved partners by fostering long lasting networks around its driving technologies such us bio & nanotechnology (EU KETs) and also exploring its potencial applications helping mantein Europe at the vanguard of knowledge technologies. Above all, the combination of partners expertise and capacities will support the success of the project.
