Kick-off meeting in Muttenz for PROLIFIC project

We are very pleased to inform you that we hold a kick-off meeting in Muttenz, Switzerland, for PROLIFIC project. The meeting will start on September the 5th at 10:00 AM and will end on the 6th at 3:30 PM. Don’t miss it!

The overall starting point of PROLIFIC is that agro-industrial residual biomass, side streams and food production by-products such as legumes, fungi and coffee are likely to constitute rich sources of valuable ingredients. Their potential is yet to be fully realised. The Prolific project will apply a range of processing technologies to agro-industrial residues of legumes, fungi and coffee in order to recover significant amounts of proteins/peptides, fibres and other value-added compounds.

The overall objective of the Prolific project is to apply, validate and scale up an integrated array of processes for recovering significant amounts of proteins/peptides and other value-added compounds from the agro-industrial residues of legumes (seeds of peas, beans and chickpeas), fungi (cuttings and mycelia of different species) and coffee (silver skin and non-compliant roasted seeds). 

The overall impact of the Prolific project is to address specific challenges posed by the valorisation of untapped biomass streams
