INGREEN project participated in the EU collaboration corner during the 33rd EFFoST International Conference held in Rotterdam. The attendees had the opportunity to discuss and learn more about the INGREEN project with project partner EFFoST. Great interest was shown on how the side-streams from the paper and agro-food industry can be used for food, feed, pharma and cosmetics. The food scientists were particularly enthusiastic to know more about how biotechnological processes will be applied to create these sustainable products
