The TRANSBIO consortium has been built as a well-balanced and equal partnership between European and Latin America Countries upon proven expertise in the field of fruit and vegetable by-product valorisation, microbial strain selection (bacteria, yeasts, fungi), fermentation strategy development and down-stream processing as well as end-product stabilisation and utilisation keeping in mind sustainability issues and economic feasibility.


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…
