Why winery by-productsObjectives BeneficiariesWhat we doWhy to take part in INNUVAOn-going projects
Nowadays winery by-products are generally used as fertilizers or to make grape spirits. But the most part of this waste is thrown away and represents an additional cost for wine-maker companies. However, from winery by-products several classes of polyphenols could be extracted and these molecules can be employed in several industrial sectors with high added value and technological content. This could be possible only through the development of a strong scientific basis: INNUVA is trying to create, develop and spread these knowledges.
  • Sharing of a scientific basis on polyphenols properties and their applications
  • Creation of a network of companies and technologies
  • Event organization, training meeting and scientific conferences
  • Supply of specific regulatory consulting for product development
