The global objective of PILOT-ABP is providing the animal by-products manufacturing industry with technologies to help obtain better economic return while the environmental impact of the process decreases and improve the industrial process with less energy use and better final products properties. The specific objectives of the project are:
- Application of pyrolysis to ABPs for obtaining mainly bio oil as a fuel or as a source of fats and oils with greater purity. As by-products of the process, coal will be obtained and an aqueous phase that could be used as liquid fertilizer.
- Application of new extraction technologies based on the rendering process in order to obtain animal oils with higher value.
- Obtaining of gelatine and collagen derivatives for manufacturing functional and biodegradable, more ecological and sustainable biopolymers based on the rendering process.
