SynoProtein project officially launched in September 2023

The SynoProtein project was officially launched in September 2023. Its kickoff meeting was successfully held at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in Copenhagen, Denmark on September 26th, 2023. SynoProtein Project is a collaborative project of 11 partners from four countries, supported by the Circular Bio-based Europe Joint Undertaking (CBE-JU) and its members under Grant Agreement No. 101112345.

SynoProtein consortium covers the whole value chain from wood residue to feed, consisting of 1 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) – WAI Environmental Solutions AS (WAI); 2 large enterprises  – Bergene Holm AS (BH) and Skretting Aquaculture Research Center AS (Skretting); and 8 research institutes – Technical University of Denmark (DTU), University of Boras (HB), SINTEF Industry (SI), SINTEF Energy Research (SER), Norwegian Institute for Sustainability Research (NORSUS), Norwegian Institute of Food, Fisheries and Aquaculture Research (NOFIMA), Research Institute of Sweden AB (RISE), and Gesellschaft für Chemische Technik und Biotechnologie (DECHEMA). 

During the meeting, the Project Coordinator WAI first welcomed all partners to the kickoffmeeting. Project Officer gave an informative presentation about CBE JU project management. Each partner gave a 10-min presentation on their organization’s expertise and roles. Then each project’s work package leader made a 20-min presentation to introduce the tasks, objectives, and action plan for the next 6 month of the project. The meeting provided the opportunities for all partners to meet and discuss face to face, covering every aspect of the wood residue to feed value chain (i.e. technical, regulatory, safety, practical issues). It set a very good foundation to officially launch the project. 

The next meeting will be the consortium meeting along with project management board meeting that will take place in March 2024 in SI, Trondheim, Norway.
