Recovery and circularity of valuable resources

We are proud to be part of this ambitious project to bring novel separation technologies to make our valuable ingredients from food companies side-streams. In this project, we will join forces with different parties to bring further upcycling technologies into the market.


Here you can find the publication by one of the partners: Institute for Sustainable Process Technology.

As a result of the growing world population, raw materials are becoming increasingly scarce. That is why we want to have a circular economy in 2050 in which all raw materials are reusable.

However, this requires new separation technologies that can recover valuable substances from streams that would otherwise have ended up as waste.

In the new ReCoVR project, researchers develop new materials and coatings for electrically powered separation technologies that are more energy efficient, cleaner and more specific than current separation methods.

The focus lies on five application areas

Water purification
Isolating flavorings
Recycling chemicals
Recovering foods such as sugar and salt
Purifying proteins that are used, among other things, in the production of meat substitutes and high-protein dairy.
