NapiFeryn BioTech developed and patented technology to obtain food grade proteins from the material left over after pressing oil from rapeseed. The rapeseed proteins generated in our technology have unique functional properties which make them an ideal food ingredient. Technology has been proven on pilot scale – we generate pre-commercial samples that we offer to food producers. The technology package will be disseminated through licensing agreements.
Competences & Capabilities
Main areas of specialisation and technological expertise are:
- Novel technologies for extraction, purification and isolation of proteins from oilseeds such as rapeseed, sunflower, soybeans etc.
- All aspects of processing of source material to final protein products, including scale-up and technology transfer
- Analytical tools for complex characterization of protein isolates and protein concentrates
- Innovative food products containing protein derived from rapeseed and other oilseeds
Partner in the following EIT Food projects
TriboTec: Protein enrichment and fractionation of side streams by dry tribo-electrostatic separation technology
Triboelectric separation is a technology which is so far used in mineral processing. The water-free separation is based on the induced electrical contact charge of particle surfaces.
It is a global challenge to ensure sufficient food to feed future generations while utilizing natural resources in a sustainable manner.
Creative infotaining is the future of knowledge transfer and co-creation among young generations.
The Action Line is divided into 2 complementary programmes – RIS Fellowships dedicated to Master of Science students and graduates and RIS Talents dedicated to Ph.D. students and postdocs from 28 EIT RIS countries which both aim to promote brain circulation, contributing to enhancing the innovativeness of personnel and development of scientific impact by supporting the creation and diffusion of high-quality new knowledge, skills, competences and solutions to food system challenges.
