Recycling crustaceans shell wastes for developing biodegradable wastewater cleaning composites

Recycling crustaceans shell wastes for developing biodegradable wastewater cleaning composites BIOSHELL Wastes from agriculture and fishery cause harmful effects on the environment and implicitly on humans. But, many of these wastes can be recycled. One of the current global issues refers to minimizing waste production, effective wastewater treatment, biosafe food production, and reducing hazards from… Continue reading Recycling crustaceans shell wastes for developing biodegradable wastewater cleaning composites

Sustainable utilization of zooplankton as by-products

Sustainable utilization of zooplankton as by-products BIOZOOSTAIN The main objectives of BIOZOOSTAIN is to fully process valuable ingredients, such as astaxanthin, chitin, polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids, wax-esters and enzymes from marine zooplankton, such as Calanus finmarchicus, which are taken ashore and introduced as a side raw material or by-catch during pelagic fishing. The aim is… Continue reading Sustainable utilization of zooplankton as by-products

Commercial exploitation of marine collagen and chitin from marine sources

Commercial exploitation of marine collagen and chitin from marine sources BlueCC Over the coming decades, the world will witness increased competition for limited and finite natural resources, e.g. to feed the 9 billion global population by 2050 and to handle changed demographics. An aging population requires new solutions to add life quality to those extra… Continue reading Commercial exploitation of marine collagen and chitin from marine sources

Advanced Materials using Biogenic Calcium Carbonate from Seashell Wastes

Advanced Materials using Biogenic Calcium Carbonate from Seashell Wastes CASEAWA The project “Advanced Materials using Biogenic Calcium Carbonate from Seashell Wastes” (CASEAWA) aims at producing chemically and physically functionalized biogenic calcium carbonate particles (FbCCP) using fishery industry waste seashells from mussels and oysters (7 Mton/year). FbCCP will be used in polymeric compounds and to obtain… Continue reading Advanced Materials using Biogenic Calcium Carbonate from Seashell Wastes

Optimizing land-based fish production in next generation digital recirculating

Optimizing land-based fish production in next generation digital recirculating DIGIRAS Recirculating aquaculture systems (RASs) have been developed for land-based production of sea- and freshwater species. These systems are designed to provide high biomass production while reducing resource usage and maximizing control of operational parameters. However, only a few of these parameters are systematically monitored, and… Continue reading Optimizing land-based fish production in next generation digital recirculating

Improving aquaculture sustainability by modulating the feedmicrobiome-host axis in fish

Improving aquaculture sustainability by modulating the feedmicrobiome-host axis in fish ImprovAFish As the human population surges towards 10 billion, the production and consumption of aquaculture products such as fish is expanding. Efficient and environmentally sustainable practices are therefore required to ensure long-term food security. To solve these challenges, attractive solutions include developing new feed ingredients… Continue reading Improving aquaculture sustainability by modulating the feedmicrobiome-host axis in fish

Increasing Echinoderm Value Chains

Increasing Echinoderm Value Chains InEVal Sea stars, Sea urchins and Sea cucumbers are abundant marine biomass resources that are under developed. Throughout Europe, these Echinoderms are wastefully exploited, disregarded and discarded. Researchers and industry partners in the InEVal project will advance high quality Bioeconomic products and services from echinoderm biomass. InEVal addresses societal demand for… Continue reading Increasing Echinoderm Value Chains
