The project target was to develop an integrated process chain to produce high-added-value additives
for food, nutraceuticals, cosmetics sectors and feedstock for paper industry at the same time. The SUBWEX concept intelligently combines the value added reuse of agricultural by-products, the eco-friendly extraction
of new and “green” valuable bioactive substances
, and the supply of solids to replace expensive fibre raw materials. It thus meets the demands of a variety of sectors
in a synergistic approach. Subcritical water extraction (SWE) is at the heart of the development
The results of this project were presented at a workshop in Dresden in October 2014. A summary is presented below.
