Watch the final INGREEN project video!

The INGREEN project has successfully closed, and a new video summarizes its main results. The project aimed to develop new methods to transform side streams from whey, wheat and rye bran, and wastewater of paper and cardboard factories into bio-based ingredients. The project screened a large number of microorganisms to identify those that could efficiently […]

Interview with the INGREEN Project Coordinator Narinder Bains, iNeuvo

In this interview project coordinator Narinder Bains discusses how BBI JU- funded projects are particularly important for Small to Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to be able to collaborate with prominent academics and researchers. Their expertise allow SMEs to further develop products with market potential that would otherwise get stuck in the valley of death. This is […]

INGREEN at the 35th EFFoST International Conference

Project results from INGREEN will be presented during the BBI special session titled Bio-Based ingredients, on Tuesday 2 November in Lausanne, Switzerland. INGREEN will be joined by two BBI projects namely PROLIFIC and NEWPACK in this special session dedicated to bio-based ingredients. The former is focused on integrated cascades of processes for the extraction and […]

The scientific approach of INGREEN

In this interview Prof. Rosalba Lanciotti from the University of Bologna talks about the scientific approach taken by the INGREEN project and innovative ingredients and products that have been developed thus far. INGREEN’s scientific coordinator, Prof. Rosalba Lanciotti explains that the scientific approach taken by INGREEN is ‘based on the assumption that only tailor-made biotechnological […]

INGREEN in the Top 50 for bio-based innovations

This EU commission report identifies the 50 most significant bio-based innovations for the next 5-20 years. The work conducted in the INGREEN project contributes to these innovations which are driven by advances in life and biological sciences and technologies, and the use of these technologies to produce bio-based products and services. Bio-based innovations can enable […]

The secret to INGREEN’s success

The project mobilizes complementary and multidisciplinary knowledge and skills from academia and industry. The INGREEN project, currently about halfway through, is well on track, despite interruptions from COVID-19 restrictions. According to Prof. Lanciotti, the project’s scientific coordinator, “this is due to the strength of the project consortium based on complementary and multidisciplinary expertise from academia […]

Key steps to create more value from side streams

INGREEN will obtain at least 20% more value than state-of-the-art methods from the project side-stream feedstocks, which are usually considered waste, through six key steps. The scientific approach followed by INGREEN assumes that only tailor-made biotechnological approaches and processes, validated at industrial levels, may overcome the main barriers limiting the production of bio-based ingredients, compounds, […]

Celebrating the riches of Earth

Each year we celebrate Earth Day in gratitude for all the magnificence this beautiful planet provides us, from the food that we eat to the natural resources that we use to clothe and house ourselves. Alongside these practical offerings, Earth is covered with spectacular landscapes and wonderous creatures, so wide ranging one human could never […]
