We are a team LOOKING FOR PARTNERS to JOIN US.
We are looking to fully valorize the marginalized fruits and their by products in a complete circular economy approach. At the present time, we are focusing on Cactus, but other signature fruits of Mediterranean area can be added as well.
We need partners who have worked on valorizing agricultural products as well
Current proposal target: The Cactus pear emergence as a new crop great agro-industrial potential to the Mediterranean Basin. Proper use of this product and its by-products could reduce waste and serve as a potential new source of bioactive compounds for functional food, nutraceutical or pharmaceutical with high potential interest in human health, medicine and production of new added-value products. In addition, the byproducts can be used in animal feeding and as bio-energy source. The aim of the project is profile the bioactive compounds, develop innovative products from this underutilized crop and to revalorize its by-products for functional food, animal feeding and bio-energy by adopting the principle of the circular economy.
