EU-project LEGUVAL: valoriseren bijproducten van peulvruchten voor verpakkingstoepassingen

27 februari 2014

The three-years research project LEGUVAL, funded by the EU, was launched in December 2013.
After the extraction of the protein fraction from processed legumes production, the aim of the LEGUVAL project is to develop new protein films and coatings by wet and dry processes, which will allow improving barrier properties in packaging when applied as a layer on biodegradable plastic films while maintaining biodegradability of the final package.
The leftover biomass of protein extraction will be used as a filler inside of polymer matrix to improve the properties of plastic materials and as a source of biogas by anaerobic digestion (Nieuwsbericht LEGUVAL, 3 februari 2014).
