WP1: Biomass refining and demo plant construction

This work package aims to upscale ARBIOM’s fractionation technology by leveraging partners expertise in Wood sourcing and Scale-up of innovative processes. The objective is to demonstrate the viability of operations and economics at demonstration scale to derisk the launch of the first commercial plant.

WP2: Scale up of sugar to protein conversion

The objective of WP2 is to scale-up the Bioconversion technology to produce proteins. This will be done with a two-step approach:

-First, a small scale production performed at Rise Processum

-Then, a technological transfer will take place to scale-up and finally reach large scale production in partnership with BioBase Europe Pilot Plant

WP3: Fish feed formulation & testing

This WP will focus on extensive analysis of the nutritional quality of the resulting proteins, formulation of fish feed and testing in vivo at large scale.

WP4: Lignin valorisation for feed application & other derivative

The objective of this WP is to find ways to valorise entirely remaining by-products of the process into the highest added value products, notably into fish feed formulations.

WP5: Business case analysis

WP5 will focus on developing business cases for the commercialisation of SCP.

WP6: Life Cycle Assessment

The objective of this work package is to use environmental life cycle assessment and social life cycle assessment tools to understand and evaluate the environmental and socioeconomic performance of the novel protein value chains.

WP7, 8, 9: Communication, Exploitation, Management and Ethics

WP7 objective is to ensure appropriate communication, exploitation and dissemination of SYLFEED results.

WP8 relates to all aspects of project management.

WP9 ensures SYLFEED is compliant with all applicable ethics requirements.


Work Packages

The SYLFEED project is divided into 9 work packages.
The work packages cover the whole value chain of the project from residues sourcing through biomass conversion into SCP to end-product manufacturing and testing.
Economical and environmental aspects of the project are also integrated.
