PRESERF Workshop - May 28th 2014

After four years of hard work the European research and development project PRESERF is coming to an end. The objective was to develop new and sustainable preservation techniques for food products. Now all the research partners are ready to present their results. On the 28th of May we cordially invite you to join us and learn all about the latest sustainable preservation methods. 

Program:

PRESERF research partners present research results: During the workshop all research partners will introduce their research and the most important results. As the focus of the PRESERF project has been novel preservation techniques, the workshop will offer an insight in the latest on food preservation technology.

Tour around VNK facilities: VNK provides the cultivation, harvest, preservation, processing, storage and trade of herbs for aromatic and medicinal use. Due to their quality standard and experience, they are leading in the production of herbs. The heart of their cultivation area lies in Biddinghuizen (the Netherlands). Here they have an ultramodern accommodation equipped with the most efficient and innovative production and cleaning lines. During the workshop all participant can enjoy a tour around VNK’s state of the art facility.

Demonstration of new CO₂ drying and pasteurization equipment VNK is now the proud facilitator of FeyeCon’s CO₂ pilot drying and pasteurization machine. The machine is one of the concrete results of the PRESERF project and brings a promising new technology to the market. The spin-off company CO2Dry will utilize and commercialize the machine. With this machine, food and beverages can be preserved and pasteurized according to the highest qualitative standards against low energy consumption. These advantages make it the sustainable alternative for drying all sorts of consumables. During the workshop the drying technology will be demonstrated on fruit and vegetables.

The Secret Behind Natural and Effective Cosmetics

Nature provides us with beautiful ingredients for the cosmetics industry. The question is, how to utilize those ingredients in an affordable and sustainable way without compromising their efficacy? FeyeCon uses CO₂ to harvest, protect and formulate these ingredients. Ensuring they pack as much power as possible, just as nature intended. Our processes ensure a high yield, leading to significant cost-savings in addition to superior product quality. 

 

Harvest: Powerful Ingredients

100% Pure, Natural and Organic Extracts

CO₂ is one of the few solvents that is certified organic. We use it as a safe, non-toxic, and effective extraction medium. After extraction it evaporates completely, leaving behind pure extracts virtually identical to their natural origins. Because CO₂ technology is versatile and tunable we offer selective extraction, isolation and separation of specific compounds. Due to the extracts’ improved quality, one of the main benefits is that less of the ingredient needs to be added to the end product, to achieve the same or even better result.  

 

Protect: Increasing Shelf Life and Stability

High Yield Encapsulation Technology

Many natural compounds are sensitive to light, oxidation and/or heat. FeyeCon protects these valuable ingredients by transforming them into stable powders. Additionally, we use CO₂ (micro-) encapsulation technology to coat actives, preventing them from degradation. Our tailor-made coatings ensure that powders are stable in both aqueous and non-aqueous formulations. Our technology provides 100% yield, meaning no losses of valuable active ingredients during processing.

 

Formulate: Getting the Most Out of Your Ingredients

With CO₂ (micro-) encapsulation and micronization we do not only improve stability and shelf-life. We also expand and improve formulating options.

Smart Coatings: With the help of micro-encapsulation we prevent unwanted reactions between ingredients or mask unpleasant odors. Our custom-made coatings incorporate triggers to release ingredients. These can be based on moisture, temperature, pH, erosion, friction, or have a controlled release feature. The different triggers ensure that an ingredient does its work in the right place at the right time.

Controlling Particles: By controlling particle size and morphology we control the behavior of actives to improve their bioavailability and delivery. We increase the uptake of compounds to the skin, allowing you to decrease the percentage of actives necessary in your end product. 

 

Texturize: Unparalleled Versatility 

Cost-Saving Micronization Technology

Fluffy and airy or thick and luxurious. Different cosmetic products require different textures. Market research has proven that the valuation of products are directly linked to touch and feel. Not just the efficacy. FeyeCon has created unparalleled sustainable and efficient processes for supplying customized textures for your products, without compromising between exceptional texture, product efficacy or green chemistry.

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.
