AQUABIOPRO-FIT will take residual by-products and convert them into high-quality, functional ingredients using efficient and sustainable processing methods.
|Time:||1. April 2018 – 31. March 2022|
|In cooperation with:||Pelagia (NO), Marin Biogas (SE), Nofima (NO), University of Valencia (ES), Meat Technology Centre of Galicia (ES), Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (GR), University of Crete (GR), Biognosis (GR), Biointech (BG), Seagarden (NO) Vertech Group (FR), EFFoST (NL)|
Plus-products from fish are a extremely underutilised. According to a FAO report from 2016, around half of all fish biomass is wasted – despite their richness in proteins and bioactive compounds.
AQUABIOPRO-FIT will take these residual by-products and convert them into high-quality, functional ingredients using efficient and sustainable processing methods.
The outcomes of the project will be used to stimulate different sectors of the food industry – from aquaculture to food processors and ultimately finished product manufacturers. The overall objective is to develop new processes and products based on marine by-products and, creating a substantial and sustainable impact.
