We help companies to identify the volume and type of side streams. Prevention is the first priority. We identify what products - food, feed, chemicals and materials – can be produced from (unavoidable) waste streams, which technologies can be deployed and how to achieve financial and environmental benefits.
We do this, for example, in the EU project Pulp2Value, where we are exploring - together with a dozen companies - new applications for fibres derived from sugar-beet pulp. These include ingredients for detergents, personal care products, paints, coatings and high-performance plastics. Another example is a pilot study in the project CARVE, where we have analysed the impact of recycling of unsold bread on the business of various parties in the bread chain.
