  Our feedstock: residues from   

  harvesting and processing   

Our feedstocks

Legumes, fungi and coffee residues form a mix of seasonal and year round available feedstock. A complementary mix to utilise them in a biorefinery concept.

Peas and beans, mushroom and coffee do not only belong to different botanical families, they also differ in composition and content of specific compounds. Whilst some are rich in proteins, others contain more carbohydrates and fibres, or molecules with specific activity and function such as polyphenols, phytos­terols or chitosan.

This also applies for the side-streams which accrue with harvesting and agro-industrial proces­sing.
