Resumen:
Una start-up holandesa especializada en tecnologías verdes ha obtenido la patente de un proceso de biorrefinado para transformar biomasa de pulpa de café y obtener biocompuestos de valor utilizados como ingredientes alimenticios. La empresa busca socios con el fin de desarrollar aplicaciones en cuatro sectores: industria de pinturas (pinturas al agua), cuidado personal (aplicaciones cosméticas principalmente), industria alimentaria (emulsiones de aceite y agua, como bebidas) y alimentación animal (sustitución de leche de vaca). El objetivo es establecer acuerdos de cooperación en materia de investigación.

Dutch green tech start-up is looking for partners to develop applications for valuable bio-compounds
Summary:
A Dutch green tech start-up has a patented bio-refinery process to transform coffee pulp biomass into valuable bio-compounds such as food ingredients. The company is looking for partners to develop applications of the product in four industries: paint industry (water based paints), personal care industry (mainly cosmetic applications), food industry (oil in water emulsions such as beverages) and animal food industry (calf milk replacement) for a joint research cooperation agreement.
Description:
When coffee cherries are being processed, half of the biomass that the coffee farmer harvests is considered a side stream. This side stream (named coffee pulp, consisting of the flesh and skin of the coffee cherry) is toxic to the environment as the caffeine and polyphenol content in this side streams are too high for direct disposal in nature. Alternative use as composting material or animal feedstock present several limitations (e.g. wet matter and too high caffeine content) and complications when treated, which generates extra costs for coffee farmers and cooperatives.

The company has developed a sustainable bio-refinery process to detoxify the pulp and extract valuable bio-compounds (such as pectin, a food ingredient) from this biomass. Currently a pilot plant is being built in Colombia which will start continuous production of the food ingredient in the beginning of 2016. The next step in the development of the company is the industrial scale up from a pilot plant to an industrial size factory.

The Dutch company is looking for interested market parties with research and development facilities and personnel to identify possible applications in the paint industry (water based paints, personal care industry (mainly cosmetic applications), food industry (oil in water emulsions such as beverages) and animal food industry (calf milk replacement). The proposed cooperation is a joint research cooperation agreement to find the most suitable applications for the product.
