2024 SmartBreed

Rethinking Circular Economy in Wine Production

SmartBreed has developed a technology with which organic waste streams, in particular pomace, sediment and yeast, can be converted into valuable resources (protein, oil, fertiliser) on an industrial scale. The aims of the project are to investigate the degradation of fungicides by larvae and microbes, the reduction of food waste by extracting proteins and oil from the waste and the evaluation of the nutrient content of the fertiliser and the dis- ease-suppressing effect on the vines.
