A new refining process developed by the Nofima research institute now enables mackerel fillet producers to manufacture a high-quality oil from the residual raw material. This is how value creation and sustainability can go hand in hand.
Processing through EPH provides new and better opportunities than current technologies for re-cycling proteins into foods, as protein hydrolysates can show e.g. nutritional, sensory and/or biological activity useful in e.g. innovative food products.

Nofima is investing over NOK 8 million kroner a year of its internal funds to develop cutting-edge expertise in selected research fields. The goals for this initiative are both bold and ambitious: Nofima Food Research Institute shall be commercially useful, relevant, innovative, and at the forefront of international research within spectroscopy technology and peptide technology.
The project will increase consumers’ access to safe, healthy and convenient food through novel energy efficient processing techniques and improve utilization of raw material, by-products and waste, for which valorization strategies will be developed.

Every year there is an excess of 415,000 tons of residual raw materials in Norwegian agriculture. A lot is used for animal feed, but the potential for how vegetable peelings, animal fat and grain residues can be used better is huge.

Raw materials must be used more efficiently to build a more sustainable society. The development of a commercially viable and reasonably priced wound-healing product based on eggshell membranes is an excellent example of innovation in the spirit of bioeconomy.
We have the expertise and equipment needed to develop and formulate ingredients based on biological materials, and to adapt such material for use in foods, feed and technical areas.
