Separation, fractionation and isolation
of biologically active natural substances
from corn oil  and other side streams
to be used in food,  specialty chemicals
and cosmetic markets.


The EXCornsEED project aims to exploit the convergence between science, chemistry, biology,
engineering and biotechnology tools for the creation of new knowledge and innovative applications
to develop and validate an integrated process of innovative and highly sustainable extraction,
purification and concentration technologies to be applied to biorefineries side streams.

The objectives are the recovery of proteins and several other bio-active compounds
and the preparation of these as ingredients for food, specialty chemicals and cosmetics markets.
