BENIGN CASCADE EXTRACTIVE BIOREFINERY FOR CONVERTING AGRI-FOOD SIDE STREAMS INTO HIGH-VALUE POLYPHENOLIC BIOACTIVES AND FUNCTIONAL FIBRES FOR PHARMA, COSMECEUTICALS, NUTRACEUTICALS AND FOOD PRODUCTS

Project description

Smart biorefinery for high-value bioactive compounds

The residual biomass produced in Europe is used for either compost and animal feed or safely disposed of. It is rich in several bioactive compounds that are beneficial for human health and well-being. However, the lack of technology for extracting and preserving the bioactive compounds prevents its use for high-value applications. Polyphenols, for instance, are not exploited sufficiently. The EU-funded PHENOLEXA project will develop a cascade smart biorefinery to procure high-value bioactive compounds and unlock the potential of polyphenol-rich agri-side streams (olive, grape shoots and leaves, chicory and onion residues). The project combines pretreatment of the biomass with benign environmentally friendly green solvent extraction technology. PHENOLEXA will demonstrate the technology and validate the biorefinery’s techno-economic feasibility and environmental sustainability.
