The innovation potential of AQUABIOPRO-FIT is primarily due to the inherent versatility, size and sustainability of biomass by-products originating from fisheries and aquaculture, the ability access to the agriculture effluents in the Baltic Sea to cultivate tunicates, and the novel concepts and methods to be applied. AQUABIOPRO-FIT will use state-of-the-art processing methods to produce innovative, high-quality final ingredients and products that are not yet on the market.
The innovation potential of AQUABIOPRO-FIT includes:
- New approaches to producing high value products from processing biomass by-products of whitefish, pelagic fish, and farmed salmon, trout, sea bass and sea bream
- Utilisation of tunicate biomass, meals and fractionation ingredients as a novel source of ingredients for feed applications
- Implementation of non-conventional methods for sanitation, extraction, transformation and up-concentration of nutrients and bioactives.
- Novel tailored nutritional supplements for applications in sports nutrition, health and well-being
Innovation management is a critical process that allows organisations to become more innovative and achieve success with their product, service, process or business model. In the AQUABIOPRO-FIT project, the implementation of an Innovation Management System (IMS) will provide a framework for maximising the value of the Results, thereby increasing the competitiveness of the technology in the market.
