BioTRANSformation of by-products from fruit and vegetable processing industry into valuable BIOproducts
December 1st, 2011 – November 30th, 2015
TRANSBIO will target and realize different biotechnological approaches for transforming by-products from fruit and vegetable processing industry into value-added bioproducts. The project aims to reduce production costs for biopolymer PHB, bio-based succinic acid and enzymes for detergent application. Finally, remaining biomass will be evaluated for their potential to be used for biogas production.
