Bianca Pop / TRANSBIO: Biotransformation of by-products from fruit and vegetable processing industry into valuable bioproducts

  1. 1. BioTRANSformation of by-products from fruit and vegetable processing industry into valuable BIOproducts A European Project supported within the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development TRANSBIO SUDOE Emergence Forum 11 April 2014 Dipl.Ing. Bianca Pop – Tritecc, Romania
  2. 2. Grant Agreement no.: 289603 A European Project supported within the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development CONSORTIUM of 16 PARTNERS Argentina, Belgium, Costa Rica, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Portugal, Romania, Spain TOTAL BUDGET: 4.026.840 € Requested EU Contribution: 2.989.465 € Duration: 48 Months Starting date: 1 December 2011
  3. 3. OBJECTIVE A European Project supported within the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development valorisation of sub- products from the fruit and vegetable processing industry environmentally friendly biotechnological solutions Bioplastics - PHB Succinic Acid Enzymes
  4. 4. STRATEGY A European Project supported within the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development
  5. 5. A European Project supported within the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development END Products the end-products will be: • biopolymers (PHB) for bio-plastic packaging applications • succinic acid – purified for nutraceuticals/ platform chemicals • enzymes for household applications such as detergents  pre-treated by-products + remaining biomass ->feedstock for biogas production Succinic Acid Chemistry to Derivatives (Werpy et al, 2004)
  6. 6. A European Project supported within the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT By-products for hydrolyses experiments fully characterized and selected Laboratory fermentation test trails are running using new selected strains and hydrolysates from fruit and vegetable by-products. Based on the results the most promising combinations strain/hydrolysate will be selected for up-scaling in technical scale The transfer of results in pilot scale are foreseen to start in march 2015
  7. 7. VALUE CHAIN POTENTIAL A European Project supported within the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development a software tool was developed, in order to continuously up- date process data / productivity versus costs / economic performance etc. All partners are sending regularly the newest research results to be implemented in the Tool LCA study is on-going, evaluating also economic feasibility
  8. 8. Industrial IMPLEMENTATION A European Project supported within the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development Every TRANSBIO partner has special complementary expertise in order to implement the holistic biorefinery concept based on by-products from fruit and vegetable processing: • Fruit & Vegetable By-products • By-product Pre-treatment and Enzymatic Hydrolysis • Microbial Strain Selection • Fermentation Strategies • Down-stream Processing • Application Development • Biogas production • Life Cycle Assessment & Economic Feasibility Study
