Making the fish processing
side-streams
sustainable and efficient

EcoeFISHent

EcoeFISHent demonstrates a replicable systemic and sustainable cluster for territorial deployment of the climate neutral circular economy by creating six multilevel and synergic circular value chains (CVC) interconnecting blue and green-economies to reconcile human industrial and economic activities with marine ecosystems and marine protected areas

The project goal is to deploy sustainable and efficient use of fish-processing side streams by obtaining bio-actives and galantine for high value-added food supplements and skin care products, as well as biodegradable and compostable barrier layers for food packaging. Furthermore, other fishing industry side streams will be converted into soil fertilisers, oil for biodiesel and chitin for cosmetic applications.

The Six Circular
Value Chains (CVC)

EcoeFISHent was designed with the aim of developing six interconnected, multilevel, synergic Circular Value Chains (CVCs). Fostering a climate-neutral and circular approach. Across the blue economy, industrial manufacturing, and agriculture domains. Interconnecting hydrosphere, geosphere and technosphere in a sustainable and circular way. To reconcile our economies and human activities with the planetary boundaries.

Within a symbiosis systemic approach, every CVC will create links inside a different industrial domain: food supplements, cosmetics, packaging, bio-conversion products, soil improvers, automotive, looking beyond fishing and aquaculture to reveal synergies with stakeholders interested and possessing capabilities to derive and/or provide value from fishing and fish industry side-streams (FFS) and co-products (FCP).
