BIOCAS is about the clever cascading of biomass for use in various applications. Examples include the extraction of proteins from biomass for application in human and animal consumption, the extraction of sugars and carbohydrates for application in biopolymers or the production of energy and extraction of nutrients and organic residual material for fertilisers in the soil. Cascading means the clever linking of various chains and production techniques in order to arrive at entire chains that ultimately work together. BIOCAS aims to (co-)develop these chains and make analyses in the field of sustainability, value creation and the development of business models.
