Project Details


Goal: How to take waste products from the agricultural and fermentation industry and turn it into a valuable resource. Our goal is take the crude proteome for waste products, characterize it, and find applications for embedded peptides in other industries such as food/feed and pharma.

The Project is carried out in collaboration with the Danish Technological University (DTU) and funded by the Danish Fund for Innovation (Innovationsfonden)
