Great opportunities for Denmark to secure self-sufficiency in protein

2020.07.02Grass protein can replace imported soy protein in compound feed for livestock. However, a complete transition from soy to grass will require an optimization of grass cultivation as well as of the extraction technology applied. In addition, the grassland areas should be increased, and this will benefit the environment and make Danish agriculture more sustainable.

Summer school will be online instead

2020.06.22BioSC International Summer School 2020 – “From plants to pilot plant” - Join the summerschool and learn about bioeconomy! Due to the Corona situation and as a response of several interested persons, who hesitated to apply due to still existing travel limitations and unclear COVID-19 infection risks, we have decided now to go completely online with our Summer School!

Green Biorefining is now also underway in Sweden

2020.06.09On June 2, the first harvest entered the new test facility for green biorefining at Sötåsen Naturbruksskolan in Töreboda. In the refinery, the crops are turned into protein feed, which will be used for experimental feeding of cows, pigs and sheep, as well as sugar that will be used in the farm's biogas plant. The plant in Sötåsen is made as part of the Green Valley project a Swedish-Danish project on green biorefining in the Skagerrak-Kattegat area.
