AGRI-MARINE INDUSTRY

Image

The Verschuren Centre’s Agri-marine platform focuses on conversion of marine co-products into high value feed and food ingredients. A biorefinery project currently underway converts marine byproducts into development of cutting-edge technology that turns unused marine biomass into commercial goods for feed, plant and food markets. The technology is environmentally friendly and the first of its kind in North America.

RESEARCH FOCUS

  • Pilot fermentative marine hydrolysis for extraction of functional molecules, plant and animal health products.

  • Novel technologies for functional ingredient production from macro/micro algae and bio-transformations.

  • Bioenergy Application of functional molecules in smart packaging & films for food.
