INGREEN is an EU-funded project that will produce functional innovative ingredients from paper and agro-food by-products through sustainable and efficient tailor-made biotechnological processes for food, feed, pharma and cosmetics.

This 3,5-year project will develop new chemicals, new materials, and new consumer products from whey, wheat and rye brans, and paper-milling wastewater.

INGREEN will demonstrate in real operational environments sustainable and efficient tailor-made biotechnologies and eco-friendly approaches to produce safe and/or health promoting microbial biomasses and biochemicals, as well as functional ingredients of interest for several industrial sectors.

Innovative bio-based prototypes will be developed and where possible packaged in biodegradable solutions tailored for food, feed, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic needs.

INGREEN is a partnership between a number of organisations from the agricultural, food and industrial sectors. The direct involvement of the eight SMEs, four large industries and four academic partners well-experienced in knowledge transfer are key to devise scale up strategies and work plans needed to speed up the successful market introduction of the innovative bio-based processes and final products.
