The PlantProteinFactory (PPF) is a venture from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.
With participation of various actors, the aim is to establish a pilot plant (capacity 1 ton/hour) for extraction of plant proteins and other products originating from 18 different crops.
Later, the consortium will evaluate the possibility of building a
larger production facility (capacity up to 100.000 tonnes
of green mass per year)
The PPF will focus on becoming a raw material producer and supplier.
The green masses proposed for extraction of proteins and nutrients are from the following 18 crops:
Green rye, Lucerne, Clover, Grasses, Spinach, Carrot, Corn, Lupine, Cauliflower, Peas, Buckwheat, Orache, Hemptops, Beans, Beetroot tops, Jerusalem artichoke, Sugarbeet leaves and Kale.
Selection of samples for evaluation for the Partners:
· Plant Protein Isolate · Plant Protein Concentrate
· Functional Proteins (gels/foams/…) · Texturized Plant Proteins
· Lipids · Starch
· Fibers · Whole extracted plant juice
· Plant Organelles · Plant Inorganics
The vision is to deliver new locally produced, allergen-free and environmentally friendly plant-based alternatives to the food, feed, cosmetics and health food industries, who wish to evaluate raw materials samples from the PPF and develop new products on their own.
