Retail food waste valorisation


How it works

UNIMORE and Kour Energy will use insect rearing to convert kitchen and restaurant scraps into a rich biomass, which is converted into products via extraction and fractionation.
The resulting protein, lipids and chitin will be validated for food and feed applications by Nutrition Sciences and Zetadec.
ITENE will also test the use of chitin for the production of reinforcement bioplastics and biomaterials for food packaging.
