INGREEN logo screen bigINGREEN: Bio-based ingredients for sustainable industries through biotechnology

Program: H2020-BBI-JTI 2018

Duration: 42 months, June 2019 - June 2023

Partners: INEUVO, Universita Di Bologna, Tralee, Barilla, Smurfit Kappa, NovaID, Activatec, PIVETTI, TECNOPACKAGING, INNOVEN, MAMBELLI, AVECOM, ISITEC, DEPOFARMA, EFFOST, Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz (FHNW)

Target: INGREEN is an EU-funded project that will develop functional innovative ingredients from paper and agro-food side-streams through biotechnological processes for food, feed, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, cosmetics and bio-degradable packaging.This four-year project will develop new chemical building blocks, new materials, and new consumer products from whey, wheat and rye brans, and paper-milling wastewater.

INGREEN will demonstrate in real operational environments sustainable and efficient tailor-made biotechnologies and eco-friendly approaches to produce safe and/or health promoting microbial biomasses and biochemical raw materials, as well as functional ingredients such as prebiotic and pre-fermented food ingredients.

Innovative bio-based prototypes will be developed and where possible packaged in biodegradable solutions for food, feed, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and packaging sectors.
