A greener chemical industry with AvoRe

A greener chemical industry with AvoRe

The Chitinsect project, which started in January 2014, is completely in line with the vision of FISCH (Flanders Innovation Hub for Sustainable Chemistry) regarding the development of new technologies starting from green and renewable chemicals.

 

Within this project, the starting point is formed by the cultivation of the black soldier fly, which is then transformed in several interesting biorenewable resources such as chitin and chitosan that are obtained after careful refinery. These form the starting materials for several new applications developed by the companies in this project, together with several relevant research institutes.
