AGRIMAX: Agri and food waste valorisation co-ops based on flexible multi-feedstocks biorefinery processing technologies for new high added value applications
Agrimax will develop two pilot processing plants and use them to demonstrate the technical and commercial feasibility of extracting high-value compounds from agricultural and food processing waste.
By applying them sequentially, Agrimax will produce a cascade of bio-based compounds with high-value applications, such as:
- Packaging (bio-polymers, bio-composites, bio-based coatings, active packaging, stabilising agents)
- Food (additives, ingredients, natural flavourings, edible coatings, microbial growth media)
- Agricultural Materials (biodegradable pots, mulching films, bio-fertilisers).
By reducing waste and our dependence on fossil-fuels, Agrimax will help to maximise the EU’s sustainability, while creating new growth and jobs.
