40% of grape pomace produced in EU wine industry is destinated to a low waste-hierarchy stage (fertilizer or fuel) although the grape seeds are rich in proteins that shall be extracted and revalorized during winemaking process.
SEEDSPRO2WINE implements one circular business model based on a pioneering & mature-R&D-results industrial process for the extraction of proteins from de-tannificated grape to be exploited as a fining agent in the wine industry and to replace the traditionally-used protein gelatin of animal origin and protein extracts from food crop.
The system will produce 24 tons/y of proteins by end of the project while 120 tons/y are planned by 2031, covering 17% of Italian protein demand (5% EU).
A reduction of GHG emission is expected comparing our process with the animal and vegetal-based proteins.
Project 101074362 – LIFE21 – ENV – IT – SEEDSPRO2WINE is co-funded with the contribution of the European Commission, under the LIFE Program – Circular Economy and Waste - Grant Agreement n. LIFE21-ENV-IT-SEEDSPRO2WINE/101074362
