Bioplastics from fruit and vegetable by-products

Challenge to transform biological waste into raw materials for industrial processes

The TRANSBIO research consortium, formed by 16 research bodies and national and international firms, such as CNTA as the technological expert in fermentation processes and industrial microbiology, met recently to discuss the state of research and current development. The meeting took place in Bremerhaven, Germany, where TTZ, one of the project’s partners, is based.

At the meeting, TRANSBIO’s partners learned that current research is focusing on defining the optimal conditions for fermentation to optimise performance in fermentation processes and maximise profitability in the production of plastic biopolymers, succinic acid and enzymes from vegetable by-products.
