Pro-Enrich meeting in Brussels

Pro-Enrich – Development of novel functional proteins and bioactive ingredients from rapeseed, olive, tomato and citrus fruit side streams for applications in food, cosmetics, pet food and adhesives – project partners met in Brussels (Belgium) for a steering committee meeting at the end of January 2020.

Dr Matthew Schwarzkopf joined the meeting in his role as the InnoRenew CoE representative on the project. Discussion focused on the Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking evaluation committee report, which reviewed all project activities and identified several challenges that need to be considered in the project’s last year.

Pro-Enrich, an EU-funded project, aims to develop biorefinery technologies that process agricultural residues into bio-based proteins and phenolic compounds to replace the petroleum-based counterparts currently used in industrial production of food, cosmetics and other consumer goods.
