LIFE farm4more will implement a simplified green biorefinery process that will allow for an array of input substrates (grass-/legume-/seaweed-silage) to be biorefined into AA-concentrates that will be used as climate mitigating-, economically viable-organic certified animal FEED products.
To achieve this objective the following sub-actions are required:
(1) Select a definitive site for the implementation of the green biorefinery pilot prototype (Austria).
(2) Implement a green biorefinery pilot prototype plant to process silage.
The pilot plant will consist of the 4 main sub-processes listed below, being integrated:
(i) processing and fractionation of silage feedstock to produce liquid extract and a solid fraction
(ii) Downstream processing of liquid extracts
(iii) Evaporation of liquid products to produce concentrates
(i.v) Biosensor based monitoring and control system
(3) Operation of the green biorefinery.
The green biorefinery prototype once commissioned will be operated throughout the project where:
(i) hydrolysed protein concentrates form different grass/legume feedstocks at different quality levels will be produced.
(ii) data sets on product compositions and process configurations will be generated.
(iii) products and processes will be optimised
