Biorefineries for the valorisation of macroalgal residual biomass and legume processing by-products to obtain new protein value chains for high-value food and feed applications

Project description

Natural alternative source of proteins from algae

As protein demand for both human food and animal feeding increases, the EU requires 30 million t of imported soy each year. Thus, the EU becomes dependent on imported soy. The existing source of protein is becoming unsustainable from an economic and environmental point of view for Europe, resulting in concerns over the future of food security. As a consequence, there is a rising demand for low-cost natural alternative proteins. The EU-funded ALEHOOP project will demonstrate at pilot level sustainable macroalgae and legume-based biorefineries, aiming to extract dietary proteins as natural alternative proteins from algae-based and plant residual biomass for livestock feeding. The project intends to contribute to a reduction of the EU’s dependency on imported proteins and the increase of raw material security.
