Integrated sustainable processing of oil and functional protein from oilseeds (INTRINSIC)
Oilseed residues are a large source of protein loss in the supply chain. Achieving total use will have huge impact. Technology extracting protein from oilseeds exists, but full-scale adoption is limited by huge CAPEX. INTRINSIC will develop safe, sustainable and cost-effective co-extraction of oil and protein along two lines: 1) based on existing full-scale processing, and 2) using a novel mild aqueous approach. Both will share a sound knowledge basis linking processing to protein functionality.
