Role of the project
The SITEIA PARMA consortium will operate in OR 2 by characterizing the protein, lipid and chitinosa fractions belonging to insects and by experimenting, in the laboratory, procedures aimed at obtaining and purifying these fractions.
Specific project competences
– Experiencing in the structure and function of proteins, belonging to the feeding field
– Methods for the polysaccharide fraction of biomass characterization.
– Use of enzymes to extract and enhance the protein fraction of food waste.
All these competences will be firmly used to extract and characterize the biomolecules of insect origins.
