DAFIA - Biomacromolecules from municipal solid bio-waste fractions and fish waste for high added value applications
The main objective of DAFIA is to exploit municipal solid wastes (MSW) and marine rest raw materials (MRRM) as feedstocks for higher value products. Municipal solids wastes represents more than 500 kg/capita (EU-27 average) and 300 million tonnes overall every year in the EU-32. Currently, approximately 50% of this volume is landfilled, while the rest is incinerated for energy production.
Re-FOOD is an international partnership for research and education in energy efficient resource utilization in FOOD value chains between Norway and India.
iProcess - the green shift in the food processing industry
Eyes, brain and hands: these are the tools that shall carry Norwegian fish, agriculture and aquaculture from harvest and production, through careful processing, until it reaches the consumer.
Establishment of fisheries technology from biological valuable production of fish products made from recycled materials
The aim of this project is to transfer knowledge and experience accrued by Norwegian researchers and industry and adapt them to Lithuanian fisheries sector.
The aquaculture industry will experience a lack of fish oil for feed production, and there is a need for alternative EPA and DHA sources. Marine microalgae can be a source of marine oils.
Biomass measurement using machine vision
Biomass measurement of plankton is a time consuming, but critical component in order to maintain a stable, controlled culture. Often solved manually and off-line, the task includes time-consuming counting of cells in which samples must be transported from cultures to laboratory.
Added value from high protein and oil industrial co-streams (APROPOS)
The focus of APROPOS is to develop novel eco-efficient bio-mechanical processing solutions to enrich intermediate fractions from industrial high protein and oil-containing process residues originating from agriculture and fisheries.
Technology for extraction and sorting of residual materials from herring
The proportion of herring that are filleted has increased from 30% to 50% from 2003 to 2010, and it is expected that it will increases in future. This project will develop a system that takes out the individual fractions from the fillet to make use of the valuable raw material.
