NOSHAN | Sustainable Production of Functional and Safe Feed from Food Waste

Sustainable Production of Functional and Safe Feed from Food Waste

    FRAMEWORK

Seventh framework programme of the European Community for research and technological development including demonstration activities

SEVENTH FRAMEWORK PROGRAMME

    DURATION

2012 - 2016

    GALLERY

OBJECTIVES

  • Addressing the process and technologies needed to use food waste for feed and feed additives production at low cost, low energy consumption with maximal valorization of starting waste materials
  • Investigating nutritional value and functionality according to animal needs, as well as safety and quality issues
  • Characterizing nutritional value of food wastes and to investigate innovative technologies to stabilize and convert them into suitable raw materials for bulk feed
  • Obtaining functional feed ingredients (additives) from wastes addressing cost and functionality in animals

INNOVATIVE ASPECTS

  • Investigation of innovative processing technologies for bulk feed ingredients
  • Validation of all initiatives in in-vitro tests
  • ETV certification for innovative feed preparation technologies
  • Evaluation of the whole value chain starting from cradle to animal farm including exploitable products through a two-tier LCA study

TECHNOLOGIES

  • Innovative conditioning and drying technologies
  • Processing technologies for extracts, pectins and peptide preparation

IMPACTS

  • Specific impact of the NOSHAN Project is to turn food waste into feed at low cost and low energy consumption
  • In a greater scale, turning agricultural waste into animal feed opens up new opportunities fo farmers while cutting Europe’s dependence on feed imports
  • NOSHAN concept will particularly be welcome in rural areas where feed industry is a powerful economic engine
  • NOSHAN products has direct environmental benefits in terms of carbon emissions, land use and ecotoxicity

EKODENGE’S ROLE

Work Package Leader

 

  • Sustainability assesment and support to eco design for the process
  • Life cycle assessment to evaluate exploitable final products
