A survey of an our friend project: Agrimax
Food ingredients and packaging additives can be extracted from by-products and unavoidable wastes for the agrifood production chain. The Agrimax project would like to find out the thoughts of businesses in the food and packaging supply chain on the applicability of these compounds in today’s food businesses.
Agrimax is an EU-funded project that is developing and demonstrating the production of multiple, high-value products from crop and food-processing waste by building two, flexible, multi-feedstock pilot biorefineries in Europe. The project aims to tackle Europe’s food waste problem as around 90 million tonnes of food and 700 million tonnes of the crop are wasted every year. The project will maximise the EU’s sustainability while providing new biobased compounds for the chemicals, food-packaging and agricultural sectors.
SSICA (the BiocopacPlus’ coordinator) is a partner in the Agrimax project, as part of the project we work for a further research and development of the cutin-based lacquer formulation optimizing the extraction process of cutin and applying the coating on other substrates as plastic and for other industrial sectors. It will take around 10 minutes to fill in the survey. All answers will be handled anonymously; it is not possible to track back any answer to any participant of the survey.
Take the survey. – Answers will be collected until the 30th June 2019.
