CYCLE - Total utilization of raw materials in the supply chain for food with a bio-economical perspective
MetadataShow full item record
The CYCLE project aims to achieve total utilization of raw material from fish, chicken and vegetables. This will be carried out by means of the development of new bioprocesses and technological solutions, combined with assessments of socio-economic challenges focusing on sustainability. The project includes industrial participation involving partners from the Agricultural and marine food sectors alongside feed industry, energy and logistics companies, as well as equipment manufacturers. These food resources account for some of the largest volumes of loss and waste produced by the Norwegian food Processing industry, retailers and consumers. The holistic and sustainable approach adopted by the CYCLE project has provided the platform necessary to apply current technological developments and innovation in the food sector in the prevention of loss and the generation of added value, as well as increases in raw materials circulation and the utilization of rest raw materials. Expertise and knowledge obtained from different value chains has been used to address new bio-economic challenges in which rest raw material resources from one chain represent the raw materials in another.
