Sustainable Valorisation Strategies for By-products from Fruit and Vegetable Transforming Industry.

The project aims the implementation of an innovative cascading concept for the betterment of sub-products using environmental friendly biotechnological solutions like fermentation and enzyme-conversion strategies to obtain valuable bio-products like biopolymers (PHB), nutraceuticals / platform chemical (succinic acid) and enzymes for detergent applications.
This will improve the overall sustainability of biomass processing industry and will increase the competitiveness of European biotechnology industry through new applications.


TRANSBIO will target and realize different biotechnological approaches for transforming by-products from fruit and vegetable processing industry into value-added bioproducts.
The project aims to reduce production costs for biopolymer PHB, bio-based succinic acid and enzymes for detergent application. Finally, remaining biomass will be evaluated for their potential to be used for biogas production. Learn more…
