The use of renewable raw materials and by-products from industry on the one hand, and the production of substances of biological origin as an alternative to synthesis products from the petrochemical industry on the other, are key concepts of sustainable development today. In this context, the production of beer in the Greater Region produces enormous quantities of by-products that are currently not fully utilised. The aim of the BIOVAL project is to develop new products and formulations with high added value for the chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food industries by applying technologies from green chemistry and (white) biotechnology. In this context, we would like to establish a cross-border value chain for the sustainable raw material brewer's grains.
Personalized Nutrition in aging society: redox control of major age-related diseases
The importance of a healthy ageing process becomes apparent when considering that (a) the Generation 50+ (G50+) already has a share in population of around one third across Europe, with obvious regional variations, (b) this share is likely to increase further in the future, and (c) vitality at older age is not only an important measure of quality of life but also key to participation and productivity. The theme “nutrition and ageing” has many different aspects and poses numerous challenges, which provide a fertile ground for many research themes and networks. Among them, the “NutRedOx” network will focus on the impact of redox active compounds in food on healthy ageing, chemoprevention and redox control in the context of major age-related diseases.
