GreenProtein at a glance

GreenProtein is an European project which aims at a major innovation in the fields of protein production and food loss reduction in EU by producing high-added value, food-grade functional proteins and other ingredients, out of vegetable residues from salad processing.

The general objective of the GreenProtein project, that gathers 8 different European partners during 4.5 years, is to establish a demo plant for the extraction and purification of functional RuBisCo protein isolate at industrial scale. GreenProtein will demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of the revalorisation of green residues from existing agroindustry.

The demo plant that will be placed into a marine container will be ready to be “plugged” to a vegetable industry production line, an easily replicable system with a high spreading projection in the whole EU.
