New applications of bio-based compounds with unique environmental, functional and/or safety performance.

Examples of Success cases

Agricultural & food-processing waste valorisation into high-value products


IRIS monitoring, IT and bioeconomy solutions support the optimal advanced biorefinery upscaling and applications of extracted compounds. 

Barrier Biopolymers from cheese by-products for sustainable packaging


Through simulation, monitoring and characterization, IRIS performed the upscaling of a patented process at industrial scale.
