GreenProtein General Assembly 2019

The Greenprotein consortium met the 9th of October in The Netherlands. During the meeting, all partners presented their progress in their respective work packages and commented on the general development of the project. It was a great opportunity to share insights and to understand the overall situation of each of the parts that (all together) make Greenprotein happen.

Green Protein: From sugarbeet leaves to protein

“GreenProtein aims at a major innovation by producing high-added value, food-grade and fully functional proteins and other ingredients, out of vegetal residues mainly from sugar beet.The main outcome will be the valorisation of 4,000 tons of agricultural residue /yearly into a high quality dried RuBisCo powder ready to enter into food industry production chains as an alternative of the widely extended egg white preparations or whey protein

Paulus Kosters, Sr Program Manager Protein at Royal Cosun, presented the Opening of the Greenprotein Demo Plant together with other Suiker Unie and Cosun Representatives.


Philippe Mengal,  BBI JU Executive Director, attended the event in representation of the BBI JU (Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking). Furthermore, Media Representatives, local authorites and different personalities of the agricualtural industry world in the The Netherlands also attended the presentation and Opening of the GreenProtein Demo Plant.

Overall, the event was a huge success. It not only was proof of the hard work of the Greenprotein project partners during the last year, but also a demostration of how public funds from the EU can help transform an innovative idea into a Demostration Plant able to produce real and functional output: RuBisco protein.
