• Waste Treatment and Valorization

WASTE TREATMENT AND VALORIZATION

More and more companies are committed to adopting cradle to cradle production cycles and recycling. FeyeCon upcycles CO₂ waste gas from other industries to make production processes more sustainable. Because we believe that recycling and waste management is of vital importance we are involved in several projects to recycle waste and upgrade byproducts. 

TREATING WASTE WATER 

Algae are able to grow in municipal and industrial wastewater and break down organic waste. Under certain circumstances and when the algae are ‘trained’ to do so, they can even absorb and concentrate chemical waste. FeyeCon researches how to optimize the cultivation and harvesting of micro-algae in wastewater. 

UPGRADED FOOD RESIDUES

FeyeCon develops new approaches to upgrade the quality of food waste and by-products that currently serve as feed or biofuel. By improving the quality aspects of these by-products they can be made fit for human consumption, achieving a higher market value. An example of upgrading food residues is the extraction of proteins out of rape seeds. Additionally, rape seed contains indigestible fibers and anti-nutrients. FeyeCon is able to separate the valuable proteins from the other components, thereby significantly upgrading the rape seed oil. Another example is the extraction of valuable anti-oxidants from olive leaves, which are now considered invaluable waste. 

VALUE FROM WASTE FLOWERS

Many by-products  generated in horticulture are considered to be waste, but contain valuable and natural ingredients. All these ingredients are currently left unused, while they could easily replace their synthetic equivalents. For example, FeyeCon is able to extract Galantamine out of narcissus bulbs, a constituent currently used to treat mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease. Color can also be extracted from flower by-product. These can be used in cosmetics, but also to enhance the color of other flowers.

Natural extracts 

FeyeCon selectively isolates and purifies valuable components from an endless array of natural sources. Sources such as plants, algae, and flower bulbs provide us with active pharmaceutical compounds, colorants, natural flavors, fragrances, and much more. FeyeCon uses an exceptionally mild and environmental friendly way to extract and purify these components while maintaining their integrity, thereby ensuring high quality of your products. Final products do not contain residual solvents and product shelf life is considerably enhanced, as extracts are free of microbial contamination. Our processes take place at low temperatures which makes it suitable for the isolation of temperature sensitive compounds. 

Galantamine - Medicine from Flower Bulbs 

Quality and purity form the basis of our technology philosophy. We offer extraction processes that ensure the best quality, the highest purity and are ready to be used as an API in the pharmaceutical pipeline. We have the know-how to extract Galantamine-HBr out of narcissus bulbs, a natural and inexpensive resource. Galantamine-HBr is a reversible acetyl cholinesterase (ACE) inhibitor and is currently used for the treatment of mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease. Our process for Galantamine extraction meets the requirements stipulated by European, British and U.S. Pharmacopeias.

Natural Cosmetic Ingredients - Sustainable Beauty Products

Plants contain natural compounds such as anti-oxidants, pigments, fragrances, oils and polysaccharides. All of these compounds can be used to benefit the human body. We extract these ingredients, so you can develop natural cosmetic formulations, enabling the replacement of their synthetic and often environmentally unfriendly counterparts.

Anti-aging Astaxanthine - 100% Natural Cosmetics

One of these ingredients is Astaxanthine, a natural anti-oxidant that protects our skin from external stress. It prevents damage to the cell structure that causes wrinkles, fine lines and pigmentation. FeyeCon extracts this ingredient from algae, a biological resource naturally rich with the anti-oxidant. It can then be used to formulate effective cosmetic products.
