  • Extraction of protein from green biomasses

Green biomass offers a huge and not yet explored potential for the production of protein for feeds and foods. With a view to examining the possibilities of utilizing this potential, Aarhus University has established a research platform focusing on the extraction of protein from clover, lucerne/al­falfa and grasses. The platform includes laboratory facilities for the extraction and analyses of fractionations of protein and other high-value components.
